The Yoke is on You

Notes and thoughts on Rev. Walk Jones’ message July 6, 2014

 

“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

Being a Christian means being willing to be yoked to Jesus Christ. This is a choice we make.

A yoke is a bar or frame that is attached to the heads or necks of two work animals, such as oxen, so that they can pull a plow or heavy load together. Farmers used to train a young ox by yoking it with an older, experienced ox. The older ox would take the major part of the load as the younger one walked along learning.

Though we all carry different burdens, all of us are called and invited by Jesus to walk with Him side by side, to choose to be yoked to Him, to let Him teach and strengthen us.
