Audio Sermons : Paul Washer :  Blessed are the Meek

 Blessed are the Meek by Paul Washer

Topic: Meekness
Scripture(s): Matthew 5:5, Psalm 37:1-11  
Description: Paul Washer begins this exposition of Matthew 5:5 by explaining that ¬ĎThe Beatitudes¬í (verses 3-11) do not just speak of what it is to live a blessed life, but they speak of conformity to the image of Christ, for they are a great description of Jesus Christ as he walked on this earth. Many preachers say little more about meekness than showing that is not weakness; but what does the word really mean? The true meaning of any word is defined not merely through a dictionary, but by studying the context of the passage(s) where it occurs; so, using the obvious parallels between Matthew 5:5 and Psalm 37:11, Mr Washer uses the context of Psalm 37:1-11 to define the word ¬Ďmeek¬í. He works through the verses one by one, revealing the character of the meek man: he does not fret, nor envy the wicked; he trusts in God and dwells in the land; he delights himself in the Lord, commits his way unto the Lord, rests in the Lord, and so on. ¬ďThis is what it means to be meek¬Ē, says Mr Washer, ¬ďand it is one of our greatest needs today¬Ē.

This message goes over one of the beatitudes, "blessed are the meek." I was anxious and weary of life when I listened to this sermon, but I found comfort and refreshment in the Word given by brother Paul. Psalm 37: 7-8 say, "Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil."
