Gospel of Matthew – Taking the Lord as Rest, Eating Him as Crumbs, and Doing the Father’s Will

07-Taking-the-Lord-as-rest

God’s goal is to gain us so that we express Him, all the time, to the fullest extent. Is this possible? How do we get from where we are now to this lofty goal of God? Is it about doing successful good works? What way does Christ show us?

In this Bible study we look at taking Christ as our rest; we look at taking him as bread, and even crumbs; and we look at doing the will of God.

Christ is one who rested in doing the will of God. His delight did not come from outward successes but from seeing God’s will done on earth. He invites us to be like Him.

As with all our Bible studies, the “meat” comes from diving into God’s word together and discussing it. We invite you to join us or gather with some others to study (and eat) God’s word together.

Gospel of Mathew – A Tour of Our All-Inclusive Christ

05-Tour-of-All-Inclusive-Christ

At Christians on Campus, we believe that knowing the Lord Jesus Christ is the best thing we could ever do. Knowing Him is not just having met Him once, believing in Him and realizing that He is now in us. Knowing Him is getting-to-know-him, more and more, little by little, and deeper and deeper. This is why the the Bible is so rich as it describes our Savior.

The Gospel of Matthew introduces us to the King, but what kind of king is He? We all know this one is the Christ, but what does the Christ mean? And, what does it mean that He is the Son of the living God?

Here are some scripture verses that motivate us to get to know Christ more and more.

Hosea 6:1-3 Come and let us return to Jehovah; / For He has torn us, but He will heal us, / And He has stricken us, but He will bind us up. 2 He will enliven us after two days; / On the third day He will raise us up, / And we will live in His presence. 3 Therefore let us know, let us pursue knowing Jehovah: / His going forth is as sure as the dawn, / And He will come to us as the rain, / As the late rain which waters the earth.

John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
