Moments with God

New Testament Bible Reading Plan

Day 12

PRAYER: Father, please help me to see the mighty works of Christ in my life that I might repent, come to Him, and find rest for my soul. In Jesus Name, Amen 

Reading assignment – Matthew 11

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

 Matthew 11_28-30

Study Questions on Matthew 11

John the Baptist’s disciples ask a question on behalf of John to Jesus: are You really the Messiah (the Coming One)? Why do you think John, who previously recognized Jesus as Messiah (John 1:29-36), asked this question?


What did Jesus tell John’s disciples to tell him?


Why is what Jesus told John’s disciples (v.4-5) so significant? How would what they saw answer John’s questions?


When Jesus refers to a reed shaken by the wind (Matthew 11:7), what do you think He is saying?


In Matthew 11:15, Jesus said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” What is meant by this statement? How can you be sure that you’re “hearing”?


Do you have ears to hear? What should you be doing?


Why did Jesus rebuke these cities (v. 20)?


Most of Jesus’ mighty works were done in these cities (v. 20). Why is it important to recognize and acknowledge the works of God in your life? (See also Luke 12:48.)


In Matthew 11:25, Jesus thanked His Father for hiding “these things” from the wise and prudent. What are some of the “things” He is referring to? (See Matthew 13:11, Matthew 16:17, and John 14:6-7, 15:15.)


Jesus said, “Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son…” (v. 27). How does a person come to know the Father (v. 27)? (See also John 14:6-10, 1 John 2:23, and 1 John 5:20.)


How does Jesus say a person who labors and is heavy laden can obtain rest (Matthew 11:28-29)? (See also John 3:16-17 and 6:37.)


Jesus said to take His yoke upon you (Matthew 11:29). What is a yoke?


Jesus said we should take His yoke upon us and learn from Him (v. 29). How do we learn from Him? (See John 13:15, 1 Peter 2:21, and 1 John 2:6.)


How does Jesus describe His yoke that He wants us to take upon ourselves (v. 30)? (See also 1 John 5:3.)


Father, thank You for Jesus’ mighty works seen in Your Word.  Help us to repent, obey your Word, and take Your yoke upon ourselves. In Jesus Name, Amen

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
