My Yoke Is Easy

7/2/2013

My yoke

This passage of Scripture has quickly become one of my favorites.

Jesus makes a revealing statement in verse 30, my yoke is easy and my burden is light”.

How can a yoke be easy? Who would want any burden? How could Jesus make this statement?!?

The answer to this is found in verse 28 of the same chapter;  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

The fact that Christ is willing to take them from you,  is what makes His burdens and yoke so easy.  True rest, true comfort and real help only come from Jesus Christ.

Too many people get scared by thinking that becoming a Christian is going to be too hard, or burdensome. But the opposite is true; becoming a Christian is letting the Lord take the burdens, the yoke of this world, from you.

This week, become a verse 28 Christian and let the Lord take care of your problems!  He promised to give you rest if you trust Him.
