Majestic meekness

The temptation of Christ by the enemy as recorded in Luke 4 shows the amazing meekness of Jesus. He did not need to use 'The Force', lasers, punches, but like David retreating from Jerusalem (2 Sam 15) offered no force except the Word of God which is a sword like no other.
Infinite meekness! to witness the God-Man condescend to this degree to save us, overcoming all our enemies in a way that we can emulate if only we will take up this holy blade in the power of the Spirit.
