King and Kingdom: Blessed are the Meek

February 14, 2016 Speaker: Eric Baker Series: King and Kingdom

Passage: Matthew 5:5


What from this past Sunday's teaching particularly caught your attention, encouraged, challenged, or confused you?


  • Meekness is not biological, but supernatural.
  • Meekness allows us to absorb life's punches, without defensiveness, or vengeance. 
  • Meekness welcomes accountablity and celebrates with other believers.
  • Meekness is not weakness 

Which of these is the hardest to accept in our own lives? Why? Share a brief story about how you have "blown it." How should we respond personally and as a community when we do? 

2. What's the difference between meekness and weakness/being nice/agreeable?

3. Read Philippians 2:1-11. How does this speak into our own lives?
Which part sticks out to you? Which part(s) do you struggle with most? How so?

4. Find specific scriptural examples of Jesus exercising meekness.  How is Jesus our standard of meekness?

5. Using the sermon and Jesus' examples how do we determine which battles to engage in and which aren't necessary?
