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. Mat 11:29 – 30.
Every man bears a yoke. Is either your yoke is heavy or it is light. Jesus promises a lighter yoke, a yoke of being faithful to his commands. The yoke of the world is burdensome, it causes violence, jealousy, greed and eventually death. The yoke of Jesus is a yoke of love, selflessness, service and doing the will of God. Are you burden with sins, is the world boring and meaningless to you? does jealousy, strive and anger deprive you from enjoying the beauty of God’s creation and unique plan for your life? You may still be struggling to carry the burden of the world. When you accept Jesus’s yoke, you are freed from carrying the yoke of the world.
To accept Jesus’s yoke is to accept the person of Jesus as lord over your life
Lord Jesus, i thank you for your readiness to receive my many burdens. I accept you as lord over my life, receive all my burdens and give me your divine peace. Lead me as i go through this journey of life, may i experience through freedom living for you throughout my stay here on earth. Amen
