Our mission is simple: we want to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord. We're growing in three ways: our unity, our purpose and our love. This happens because of the power of the Holy Spirit. God is glorified. Lives are changed. People grow in their relationships with God and with others. We're glad you're here!

Summary:
At the beginning of Matthew 11, John the Baptist is in prison and seems to be giving up hope. He sends his disciples to Jesus to ask an important question..."Are you really the Messiah or should we keep looking?"

In response, Jesus paraphrases parts of Isaiah 35 and 61, then says, "God blesses those who do not fall away because of me.” What does this mean?

Matthew 11 is a chapter focused on having a right understanding of Jesus: who he was, why he came and what he offers. And what Jesus offers to a world wearied by sin, chaos, death, and destruction is…rest. And this rest is found in Christ alone.

Read Matthew 11:1-19.
1- Why do you think John asked his question (verse 3)? What can we learn from John as an example when we have questions?

2- What can we learn from Jesus' answer? Why did he not just say "yes" or "no"?

3- What kinds of reasons does Jesus think should persuade people to believe in him?

4- What does it look like for the Kingdom of Heaven to advance forcefully? Do you see this today?

5- Jesus tells an interesting parable in verses 16 & 17. What point is he making?

6- How have your misconceptions and misunderstandings of Jesus hindered your own spiritual growth?

Read Matthew 11:28-30.
1- In your own life, how have you experienced the weariness and heavy burdens Jesus is talking about here?

2- What has it looked like to take the yoke Jesus offers? How has this given you rest?

3- What are some reasons people might be hesitant to bring their burdens to Christ?

Read John 6:37.
1- Why doesn't Jesus reject those who come to him?

Gentle and Lowly: the Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers

Christians know what Jesus Christ has done―but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” This book reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who he is for sinners and sufferers today.
