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.
