Description


Christians can easily feel that Jesus is perpetually disappointed and frustrated, maybe even close to giving up on them. They know what Christ has done for them--but who is he? How does he feel about his people amid all their sins and failures?

In Matthew 11, Jesus describes himself as "gentle and lowly in heart," longing for his people to find rest in him. This book reflects on his words, diving deep into Bible passages that speak of Christ's affections for sinners and encouraging believers as they journey, weary and faltering, toward heaven.
