Being Who God Made You To Be: Gentleness

Impact Christian Church https://www.impactfranklin.com

“..the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!”

Galatians 5:22-23
  • Gentleness = prautés, and it could also be translated as ‘meekness,’
  • Word picture for prautés,—a powerful, strong horse that is under the control of the rider.


Biblical def. be ‘power and strength that is under control for the benefit of others.

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Gal. 5:19-21

For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever[c] you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Gal 5:17-18

Galatians 5: It’s turning the reins of your anger and aggravation over to the Holy Spirit

Question who has your reins?

Each day

“Holy Spirit, you have the reins today”.

What happens when you turn over reigns?

Your gentleness will grow over time. It changes how we talk.

” Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others
up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Ephesians 4:29-32

I Want to Sound Like Jesus!

I want to stop sounding like a mad selfish person.


“Here are the reigns to my mouth Jesus”
