"...For My Yoke is Easy and My Burden is Light."

wooden yoke as oxen used in the olden days

Matthew 11: 28 - 30.    "Come unto Me, all you who are weary laden and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me. For I am gentle & humble of heart and you will find rest for your soul.  For My yoke is easy and my burden is light."

"...for My yoke is easy and my burden is light." Jesus' yoke for you is to learn of His teachings and to allow Him to carry the heaviest part of your load.

In Jesus' time, most families were farmers and used 2 oxen, tied together by a yoke. The farmers would put the younger ox yoked to the older ox so the older one could lead, teach, and train the younger ox how to walk and do. It works the same with you. You are Jesus' and He carries the heaviest part of the load for you as you are trained, taught, and led on how and where to walk (if you are listening and following what He says).

Jesus' burden was to pour Himself out for you and wants you to do the same.  Pour yourself out to Him as well as to others and His life energy will flow through you. It's harder to reign yourself back and takes much more energy!  The call is to let go and allow His living water to flow through you to others.

Enjoy the journey!
