Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, my yoke is easy and my burden is light
Jesus is inviting people to accept him as the only way to know God,
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
A new ox was often trained for ploughing or drawing a cart by yoking it with an experienced ox. The yoke kept the young ox from "doing its own thing," and it soon learned obedience to its master. In like manner, we are to commit ourselves to being yoked to Jesus. Jesus pulls more than His "share" of the load and this is the reason our burden is light. The moment we believed on Christ we were united with Christ. This new relationship with God gives us everything we need to live the Christian life. With this new relationship with God we can praise Him even when we hurt and are discouraged. When we share the yoke of Jesus, He will make our burdens light and our journey in following Him will be easy.
Jesus' call has always been to those in need. There is a greater rest that we all need, and this rest comes only from knowing God through His Son, Jesus Christ. The sooner we learn to lay our cares on Jesus, the better off we are. He can take care of all our problems, if we just depend totally upon Him. The life lived by faith is a much lighter yoke and a much easier burden to carry than the heavy and burdensome yoke of self-righteousness under which we continually strive to make ourselves acceptable to God through works. We must be willing to be yoked to Him for life, He is always there for us and to share our burdens, troubles and difficulties, he will take them away and give us rest. Philippians 4:13, I can do everything God asks me with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power. No longer do I have to only rely on my own energy.Jesus calls on each of us to come unto Him, He care for us and we will find rest for our souls. Come to Him today. Whatever your need, whatever burden you may be carrying, Jesus beckons you to come. Will you reject His invitation or will you come? The choice is yours today. Join JESUS today and ever more, where He is at work, the work that he has undertaken of sharing, expressing and demonstrating the spiritual truth. and we will receive His rest.
My choice has always been YES and it will never CHANGE. For Jesus is My Saviour, My Redeemer, My Healer and My Provider. I TRUST in JESUS alone and I Love JESUS.
Give JESUS control and care of your life and watch what He will do. Life will get so much easier and less stressful.
JESUS is saying to us, I am the Lord, trust Me, let go and I’ll catch you. Don't worry or be afraid. In Jeremiah 1:8, the Lord declares, "Do not be afraid, for I am with you and will rescue you”. Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.
