I enjoy helping people. I am an encourager and I can see the good in others. I want people to understand what it means to be an authentic Christian and not just a religious "nut." I believe if Christians lived and loved others as Jesus lived and loved others, we would experience more of heaven on earth than hell on earth. These thoughts and writings are intended to encourage you to be who God originally designed you to be. They are also intended to challenge you and make you think. Also, I want you to know that I'm praying for you every day. Blessings, Murphy Blessings to you, Murphy

Meekness


Poster art for "War Horse."2011 Walt Disney Pictures.


One of the definitions of "meekness" is power under control.
The image in the Greek is that of a "war horse" that is ready to charge; yet the horse is totally submissive to the authority of his rider.  
The horse is complete willing, ready and able to run down two of the enemy at a time, but
he will not move forward until given the command to do so by his rider.  

Jesus was meek.  He wasn't a wimp.  He was completely under the authority of his Father in Heaven.

Do you obey the Father in this way?
