What You Will Learn

”What comes to mind when we think of Jesus? What is He like?

In Matthew 11:29, Jesus called all who are weary and burdened to come to Him for rest. The discouraged and frustrated are called to take His yoke and learn from Him "for I am gentle and lowly in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burdens is light."

This book deconstructs our default assumptions about Christ and helps us see with fresh perspective His heart towards fallen sinners.
This conversation on Gentle and Lowly, the Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers discusses:

  • The humanity of Christ and what he is like
  • Some misconceptions and challenges for seeing Jesus as the kind and gracious Lord
  • Glimpses of the beauty and glory of Christ as we explore bible passages that show His longing heart to restore sinners
  • How seeing Jesus in this light changes the way we relate to Him and to others 
  • How this view has changed (and continues to impact) the caring ministry of three pastors in South East Asia.
