Sermon Title: Cultivated In His Character: Gentleness

Scripture: Galatians 5:22–24

  

This week, Pastor David continued the sermon series, Cultivated In His Character, with a message from Galatians 5:22–24. Specifically, he noted:

 

1.    The Gentleness Of God Our Father

2.    The Gentleness Of Our Savior

3.    The Path Of Gentleness

 

Going Deeper:

 

  • When you hear the word “gentleness”, what comes to your mind? How does the God of the Old Testament confirm or contradict your image? Explain. 
  • In Matthew 11:29–30, Jesus invited His followers to “yoke” themselves to Him – to choose relationship over religion and delight over duty. How does Jesus’ gentleness provide rest for your soul?
  • Pastor David shared that gentleness in our life does not mean that we ignore sin. In light of Christ’s example, how are you called to approach sin in another believer’s life? 
  • “Restore” in Galatians 6:1-2 means two things: 1) tell the truth, and 2) be tender and gentle. When are you tempted to be truthful without being tender and gentle? Will you ask God to help you in those situations this week?

Gentle & Lowly: The Heart Of Christ For Sinners and Sufferers, Dane Ortlund

   

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. 

~ Ephesians 3:20–21
