The Course of Discipleship
Matthew 11:25-30 (ESV)
1. We can know God intimately.
Matthew11:25-26 At that time Jesus declared, “I
thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that
you have hidden these things from the wise and
understanding and revealed them to little children;
yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.
The Father reveals himself to those who come to
Him in faith. It is not our knowledge or intellect that
is the key, but a humble trusting heart.
2. Jesus wants to reveal God to us.
Matthew 11:27 All things have been handed over to
me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except
the Father, and no one knows the Father except the
Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal
When we see Jesus, we see the Father. To follow Jesus,
is to learn who God is, His nature, character, and will,
and to be known by Him.
3. When we follow Jesus, we find rest.
Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all who labor and
are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my
yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle
and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your
souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Being a disciple is about trust, not about our
proficiency or effort. It is resting in the reality that
God will transform us more completely than we
could ever change ourselves.
ALL disciples imitate Jesus.
