In this world might often equals right. Whoever can wield the greatest power wins the right of control. This is true in military affairs, politics, business and many other places.
Jesus never used His power to control, though He could have, but He influenced by love. Healing, teaching, dying meekly the death of a servant.
Is the meekness ethic of Jesus lost in our church culture today? Where can we see it in action? How could we exercise it more readily?
Thy will move me, Thy will use me
You lay your crushing hand, your mighty hand
On me gently
You know my name, wound me
You know my frame, heal me
You lay your crushing hand
Your mighty hand on me gently
Do what You must and save me
I'm in the dust now raise me
Lord I believe, help my unbelief
