Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5).
The term meekness is the opposite of being out of control. Meekness does not mean weakness, but rather supreme self-control in a believer that is empowered by the Holy Spirit. The Greek word translated “meek” is praeis and means mildness, humility, and gentleness of spirit. Gentleness is how we ought to treat others, and meekness is how we ought to respond to how others offend or mistreat us. Gentleness and meekness are fruits of the Holy Spirit. Someone who knows Jesus as his Savior and submits to Him as Lord will be growing in these fruits over his lifetime, becoming more Christ-like by the inner working of the Holy Spirit (slowly but surely). work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you both to will and to work for his good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). Side Note: This verse speaks of two truths that run parallel together – man’s responsibility and God’s sovereignty. The harmonization of these two truths cannot be explained by human logic or reasoning on this side of eternity.
Born of humility, meekness overlooks small offenses, knowing that he has offended God way more than anyone could ever begin to offend him. Meekness is expressing humility toward God and others. Meekness is having the power to do or say something but holding back in self-control for the love and benefit of another, which exemplifies the attitude of Jesus. Meekness is a byproduct and expression of sacrificial love, the ultimate love we are called to show as Christians. Striving for power or control, or demanding respect and honor is not the path to blessedness or joy. That is the path to frustration, sorrow, broken relationships, and ultimately destruction and eternal separation from God. Meekness, gentleness, and living in humility are the path to being truly blessed and experiencing a real sense of joy and peace, headed for eternal glory in Christ.
The meek shall inherit the earth simply means that those who forgo the pride, power, and prestige of this life will be rewarded the kingdom of heaven, by grace through faith in Jesus. True saving faith in Jesus naturally manifests humility and the fruit of meekness.
Jesus had the power and the right to do whatever He wanted as God, but for our sake and through His sacrificial love, He was obedient to His Father’s will to the point of death on a cross (Philippians 2:6-8) This is the ultimate act of meekness.
