Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this lesson, Steve Gregg continues his study of the life of Jesus Christ in Matthew 8:18-22. Jesus tells his followers that they should learn from him and find rest for their souls. He also points out that his ministry is not politically motivated and he does not seek to attract the Pharisees. Despite the uncertainty and lack of security that comes with following Jesus, people still choose to follow him. Finally, Gregg emphasizes that being a follower of Jesus requires commitment and that preaching the gospel is a calling for those who are spiritually alive.
