An Appealing Nature

20190611_214653

In a letter to the Corinthians, the apostle Paul makes a statement to the church 

    I appeal to you with the gentleness and kindness of Christ ~2 Corinthian 10:1

My Lord does not have a forceful nature, as the world does, and is not demanding or degrading in assuring accomplishment in what He desires.  Neither is He a burdensome or forceful companion in His relationship with us.

My Lord truthfully claims, 

    Let me teach you, because I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls ~Matthew 12:29

This approach is such a welcoming gate, demonstrating that Love is not something to be feared or something unpleasant to receive .

The Lord IS love.  NOT the world.

This contrast in natures is like the difference between condemnation (worldly darkness) and conviction( Lord/love)….

Where condemnation is a harsh breaking down of the life fuel of hope…

But conviction is a gentle hand softly facing you in the wisest direction

His nature from the darkness is the difference between stirred chaos and calm silence, for

A gentle answer quiets anger, but a harsh word stirs up wrath ~Proverbs 15:1

When unrest shakes me intensely, I am soothed only by the lullaby of the non-threatening gentleness and beautiful, appealing humility that is the nature of my Lord.
