Being a Christian leader exposes you to things—things that are not always pleasant. But how one responds to these “unpleasant things” is key to the power and impact of the ministry. Jesus’ ministry was marked by gentleness. And it was with gentleness that Jesus responded to the unpleasant things in His own ministry while here. And, likewise, gentleness ought to be the response of every Christian leader that claims to be a follower of our great Leader, Jesus Christ. But, the idea of “gentleness” is often misunderstood today and sometimes even left out as an important and essential attribute of the Christian life, leaving many Christians bereft of a true understanding of both its function and its true power. Let’s remedy that.
