Jesus’ Gentleness in Us

Fruitful Marriages, Fruitful Relationships

Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 

Isaiah 40:10–11 (NIV)

10 See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power, 

      and he rules with a mighty arm. 

See, his reward is with him, 

       and his recompense accompanies him. 



11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: 

       He gathers the lambs in his arms 

and carries them close to his heart; 

       he gently leads those that have young.

 Matthew 11:28–30 (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

2 Timothy 2:24-25 (NIV)

Colossians 3:12–17 (NIV)

12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. 

15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

 Colossians 3:19 (NIV)

19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.

 Colossians 3:21 (NIV)

21 Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.

1 Peter 3:1–4 (NIV)

Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

Jesus Christ submitted to His Father to become the Gentle Shepherd.
