Special Series, Day 1: What is Jesus doing today?

Have you ever wondered about that question—What is Jesus doing in our daily Christian lives?

The Bible tells us.

Just as God’s word tells us about Jesus as the Savior of the world—God the Son came to earth as a Man so He could pay the price of sin and offer eternal life to anyone who believes in Him—the Bible also tells us what Jesus is doing today.

Jesus said in John 5:17 (NKJV): “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”

Hebrews 13:8 (NKJV) makes it clear that Jesus will work in similar ways as He has before:

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

The notable exception is Jesus’ work of salvation. Scripture tells us that was a once-and-for-all work that has no need to be repeated (Hebrews 9:12, 24-28; 10:10, 12, 14).

In Jesus’ earthly ministry, He:

  • taught people about God, life, relationships, and ministry
  • explained Scripture to people and showed them its relevance to their own lives
  • helped people to understand how much God loves them and wants to share life with them
  • called people to make a personal commitment to God
  • had compassion on people and helped them
  • took the time to pray
  • Etc.

In this four-week series, we will use the Gospels, other Bible verses, definitions of words, the context of Scripture, putting two or more truths side by side, and so on, to find the answers to this important question: What is Jesus doing today in our daily Christian lives?

1. Jesus gives our souls rest when we come to Him.

“Come to Me, all you 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.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV)

Rest from what? – fear, worry, doubt, sorrow, loneliness, confusion, wandering, captivity to sin, harassment from the enemy, and so on

Which kind of “rest” have you appreciated the most?
