The Ministry Of The Holy Spirit

"The Holy Spirit Produces Fruit: MEEKNESS"

Meekness (Galatians 5:22-23), also translated “gentleness,” is primarily a response to God. It is a state of heart that not only acknowledges God’s sovereign rule, but embraces His sovereign rule as good. A person with meekness does not blame God for undesirable circumstances, nor does he become angry with God when he does not get his way. Meekness must come from the power of the Holy Spirit. Contrary to meekness are despair, anger, wrath, impatience, anxiety, fear, and envy.
