Matthew 11:28-30

"Come to 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 gentle and lowly in heart,

and you will find rest for your souls.

For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

Step 3:

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives

over to the care of God as we understood Him.

 

 

Some of us have been bowed down with burdens of guilt, shame, bitterness, fear, and discouragement since childhood.  

 

We are tired of trying to stand, let alone walk under such a heavy load.  

As we allow God's healing love to infuse our lives, for the first time we may experience true rest.

 

Yet, just when we have first come to know rest,

Jesus tells us to take HIs yoke upon us and learn from Him.  

 

Why?  

In biblical times, a farmer would yoke a young ox with an older, capable ox so that the young one could learn to plow correctly.  

 

Jesus is saying we no longer have to try to pull the plow by ourselves.  

He will be in the yoke with us; and we will be His disciples, learning from Him.  

As we walk with Him, the burden of His yoke of discipleship upon our necks will be light indeed

compared with the painful burdens we tried to carry before we laid them at His feet.
