Apr 3 2016 // Gentle Jesus, Meek and Wild // 2 Corinthians 10:1-6
The meekness and gentleness of Jesus are like fire to a lofty world. They are divine weaponry, toppling the fortresses of vanity and self-reliance. Jesus knows who he is, and there is nothing more dangerous to desperately faceless people. We don't who we are, and so we grasp after costumes of achievers, victims, stoics. But Jesus would save us. Live in me, he pleads. Surrender, and wear my face. We will be children of God together. Nothing to prove. Unafraid. Free. This is the life Jesus brings to us, a reckless and unleashed obedience to disarm our hostile land.
