Know Jesus, Know Rest

Matthew 11:28-30 NIV

 Are you weary and burdened?

If so, you are qualified to approach Jesus to receive rest from Him.

 CAST YOUR BURDEN  .

Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 

   JESUS.

Matthew 11:29a Take my yoke upon you and learn from me…

John 14:21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.
The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.
 

 JESUS IS .

Matthew 11:29b I am gentle and humble in heart…

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

 FIND   IN JESUS.

Matthew 11:29c …you will find rest for your souls.

Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

 IT IS THE   YOU’LL EVER MAKE!

Matthew 11:30 For My yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

 SUMMARY: GOD GOES BY GRACE & GRACE  .

Ephesians 2:8–9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

Romans 8:32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—
how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

Philippians 1:6 He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

 “Oh, what a very pleasing weight that strengthens those who carry it!
For the weight of earthly masters gradually destroys the strength of their servants,
but the weight of Christ rather helps the one who bears it,
because we do not bear grace; grace bears us.
It is not for us to help grace, but rather grace has been given to aid us.”

--Anonymous Early Church Father

Series Information

Matthew became the most important of all Gospel texts for first- and second-century Christians because it contains all the elements important to the early church. In this series, we are picking up where we left off in chapter 9 and going on through chapter 13. We'll be covering the importance of getting Jesus' identity right, his healing miracles, discipleship, and several parables. This series will take us through the first half of 2020.
