Introduction.

We know a lot about what promotes physical health, and what contributes to our emotional and intellectual wellbeing. But the Bible reveals a more significant part of who we are that needs attention: our soul. The soul refers to the totality of our existence, both earthly and eternally. Your soul is the real you. Hear the words of Jesus as he offers rest for your soul.

SERIES TITLE: Rest for Your Soul

TEXT: Matthew 11:20-30

INTRODUCTION.

We know a lot about what promotes physical health, and what contributes to our emotional and intellectual wellbeing. But the Bible reveals a more significant part of who we are that needs attention: our soul. The soul refers to the totality of our existence, both earthly and eternally. Your soul is the real you. Hear the words of Jesus as he offers rest for your soul.

DISCUSSION

What makes you feel most exhausted and why:

  • Lots of physical labor?
  • Emotional upset?
  • Deadlines?
  • Too many responsibilities?
  • Worrying? 

EXAMINATION.

Vv.20-24 What judgment does Jesus announce over each city mentioned?

Why will their judgment be worse than that of the pagan cities of the OT?

If Jesus is rejected, what is the judgment?

Vv.25-27 Why is the gospel hidden from the ‘wise and learned’?

Why are ‘little children’ the standard for who receives God’s revelation?

 Vv.28-30 What is the weariness that Jesus describes?

What is the “yoke” that we need to put down so that we can take his yoke?

APPLICATION.

  • How are you like the ‘wise and learned’? And how are you like the ‘little children’?
  • How does taking up the yoke of Jesus lead to rest for your soul?
  • What are some signs that you are not learning from Christ?
  • Why is salvation not compatible with “proving yourself”?
  • Where does humility fit with “come to me” “take my yoke” “learn from me”?
  • What happens when a Christ-followers becomes yoked to something other than Jesus?
  • Where do Jesus’ words challenge your life right now?
  • Fact: What is a key truth that you understood from this passage?
  • React: What did you feel?
  • Act: What are you going to do?
