Take My Yoke Upon You


"'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.'"

- Matthew 11:28-30


Jesus' yoke is submission to the Kingdom of God.  A yoke may be the symbol of 
hardship, burdens and responsibilities.  Although it may feel heavy due to our sins,
Christ's yoke is easy.  In Him the soul is refreshed and sees that the Lord is
gracious.  A sign of Jesus' lordship is His meekness- He is gentle and lowly.  King
David emphasized that the Lord would teach His ways to the meek.  Meekness is the 
mother of love, the foundation of discernment and the forerunner of all humility.
Jesus finds rest in the hearts of the meek, while the turbulent spirit is home to
the devil.
