A Characteristic of Mother’s

WOMEN ARE MUCH MORE NATURAL NURTURERS THEN MEN

1 Thessalonians 2:7

Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, so we cared for you.

How does a nursing mom care for her baby?

  • Gently
  • Very intimate
  • Sharing of herself

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

11 For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, 12 encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.

The role of a father to their children

  • Encourage
  • Comfort
  • Urge to live a life worthy of God

What advantage is there in being gentle?

  1. Creates a safe atmosphere

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE CREATE A SAFE PLACE FOR PEOPLE TO GROW

Ephesians 3:11-16

11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

The goal of work of these leadership gifts is to…

  • Build up the Body of Christ
  • Bring unity in the faith
  • Become mature

God’s heart

  • God’s heart for us is to grow into maturity
  • God’s heart is for us to speak the truth in love
  • God’s heart is that the church grows and builds itself up in love

Spent three years investing in His disciples

Matthew 9:35-36

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

  1. How to create a safe atmosphere

Ephesians 4:2

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love

Colossians 3:12-14

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.

The result of having God’s Fruit

  • People will listen to us
  • People will watch how we respond to situations
  • People will come to us with their problems

2 Timothy 2:23-26

23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

Verse 25-26

in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

Titus 3:2b

and always be gentle towards everyone.
