“My Yoke is Easy”

by on July 30, 2019

Come unto 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 meek 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
Amazing words – how amazing are those words?

So much struggle and so many heavy hearts.
Guilt, shame, sin, frustration, hopelessness…
What to do?
A yoke can be bondage or it can be a useful tool to accomplish work
A yoke joins two animals in a common cause of moving a heavy load
They are tailor made for specific animals – Jesus’ carpenter shop – ‘we make yokes that fit.’
The metaphorical yoke is the joining of two persons who work together to accomplish a goal.

Are you and Jesus in the yoke together?
