As Christians, we often hear about the importance of understanding the heart of Christ. But what does that truly mean, and how can we deepen our understanding of it? Thankfully, Dane Ortlund’s book “Gentle and Lowly” offers us an insightful look into the heart of Christ and how it relates to our daily lives. In this article, I will introduce you to a comprehensive study guide for “Gentle and Lowly” that will help you understand the heart of Christ more intimately.
Understanding the heart of Christ is essential for believers because it reveals His character and His love for us. In Matthew 11:29, Jesus says, “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.” Through this verse, we see that Christ’s heart is gentle and humble, and that His desire is to provide rest for our souls. As believers, we are called to imitate Christ and reflect His character to those around us.
That’s why the “Gentle and Lowly” study guide is so valuable. It provides a roadmap for us to delve deeper into the heart of Christ and to apply His teachings to our lives. Throughout the guide, we will explore the biblical basis for Christ’s gentleness and lowliness, learn how to apply these traits to our daily lives, and be encouraged to continue growing in our understanding of His heart.
