On Sunday, November 7, 2021 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Matthew 11:28-30. This message is part 1 in the “King’s Heart” series. Below you will find questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion. Additionally, you will find the sermon audio/video to listen to/watch, download or share.
NOTE: This series is also impacted by the book “Gentle and Lowly” by Dane Ortlund. You can find this book on Amazon by clicking here.
- Read Matthew 11:28-30
- Think of an example in your life where you hesitate to approach someone. What about that person makes you hesitate to “come to them?” What are some examples of people who you have no hesitation “coming to them”? What is it about them that makes them so approachable?
- Jesus calls us to COME to Him and to TAKE HIS YOKE upon ourselves. This is a call to rest in salvation AND direction in sanctification (spiritual growth). Have you answered this “call” in the past? How are you answering that call today? What motivates you or demotivates you to take those steps?
- A.W. Tozer said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” In what way do you think this statement is true? What comes into YOUR mind when you think about God?
- Jesus reveals that the heart of God is GENTLE. Based on our study of that concept this morning, what stands out to you most about the Gentle Heart of God toward you?
- Does the gentleness of God drive you to Him for forgiveness and provision? Does the gentleness of God motivate you to be “yoked” together with Jesus in the direction of our lives? What does that mean for you today?
- As a Christ follower, how does the gentleness of your Savior show up in the way you interact with those around you today?
- What stands out to you most from this message? Any particular takeaway?
