Much of Gawain's virtue rests in his religious piety, from which he gains the strength to endure his ordeals. As he wanders through a desolate Waste Land, Gawain is the "servant of God" and finds his strength in talking to God (ll. 692-711).
Gawain uses strength found in his Christian faith to counter the sexual advances of Lady Bertilak.
As a knight, Gawain is known for his physical strength and endurance. He is well versed in the tools of war and horsemanship. Gawain's strength one stroke; “so that the sharp of his blade shivered the bones, and sank clean through the clear fat and clove it asunder” (Lines 426-427).
