The Gentleness of Christ


Tell the people of Jerusalem, ‘Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey— riding on a donkey’s colt.’      Matthew 21:5

As we walked up the boardwalk the birds were startled by our approach and immediately spread their wings. When Jesus entered Jerusalem He chose a plain and simple donkey to be His way of coming to His people. He knew that if He came in all the glory and power of Heaven they would fly away and hide from Him. God’s grace is continually dealing with us in gentleness. He is not so interested in snaring us, as in providing us a quiet place where our hearts can come to rest.

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
