Power Under Control

I continued my new study of the Sermon on the Mount. I am presently through the Beatitudes of Jesus in Matthew 5:3-12. What a challenge it is to wrestle with the demands of Jesus. My soul is being stretched and my mind is being renewed. I pray the congregation of SMBC is being blessed by the study so far.

Here is the sermon skeleton from last night’s message:

Title: “Strength Through Meekness”

Text: Matthew 5:5

Series: The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7)

Theme: The blessedness of meekness

Point: God blesses the person who lives with confidence that God is in control.


I. What is meekness?

– Meekness is not weakness.

– Meekness is power under control.

– Meekness is self-control rooted in confidence that God is in control.

II. What is the blessing of meekness?

– Jesus calls the meek blessed because of their inheritance.

– Jesus promises that the meek will inherit the earth.

* This is a promise for tomorrow

* This is a promise for today

  1. What a wonderful Wednesday in the Word. I can not remember being given the meaning for Meekness so plain and clearly. Thank you again Pastor for the love you put into your teachings. It gives joy to the soul.
    While you are always praying for others, there are always others praying for you. Some in our secret closet.
