The Light Burden of Jesus Christ, Part 1

Matthew highlights for us the fact that Jesus brings true rest in utter contrast to what the religious leaders offered. Having told us that his yoke is easy and his burden is light, Jesus now confronts religious legalism and shows us that his Lordship overrules such pettiness and brings true healing and gospel freedom.

Rest for the Weary Soul, Part 2

Reactions to Jesus were mixed in the days of his earthly ministry—and they remain so today. And to get to grips with the dynamics of people's responses, we need to know and understand two aspects of Jesus' character and identity that might almost seem contradictory, but which hold together perfectly in him: Jesus Christ has all authority—while at the same time, he is gentle and lowly.

Recognizing and Responding to Jesus, Part 2

As Jesus engages with the crowds, we begin to see how the world responds to Jesus Christ—and we see what Jesus makes of their responses. These engagements, of course, carry vital lessons for us as we consider our own response to Jesus. And so we want to observe them carefully to ensure that we respond rightly to Jesus—and keep on responding rightly to him.

The Kingdom That Divides, Part 2

In Matthew 10, Jesus sets out clear expectations for his followers of what it will look like to serve him and walk with him. And he wants us to know, quite frankly, that if we were trying to find our way to a lifestyle dream—a place of comfort and pampering—we have come to the wrong place, and we have chosen the wrong Lord.

Two Ways to Live, Part 2

Here Jesus focuses on our response to his Word—and the eternal implications of that response. We need to avoid false teachers as being very dangerous, we need to bear fruit as a sign of our response to the Word, and we need to be careful to build our lives on the solid and secure foundation of his Word.

Speaking Wisely, Part 2

As our heavenly Father treats us with grace and kindness, Jesus calls us to treat others with grace and kindness (and not judgmentalism). This sums up the requirements of the Old Testament Law—and it acts as an indicator of our spiritual state. Living as Jesus calls us to live is an indicator that we are entering life by the narrow gate; hypocrisy in this area is a sign that a person may be heading to destruction.
