“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me.”
When Jesus came, He offered an ‘easy’ and ‘lighter’ yoke compared to the yoke of the religious leaders. They have placed heavy burdens of laws on the people which no one could possibly keep.
Today, despite the grace that is now available; religious leaders are still placing heavy yoke on people. God knew we would never be able to measure up to His standards so He sent His Son, Jesus to this earth. Jesus obeyed His Father’s commands perfectly and bore the punishment of death for our sins.
As we humble ourselves and recognise our need for forgiveness and the grace of God that is available, Jesus comes along side us and places His yoke on us, freeing us from guilt and condemnation giving us the power and grace to live a life that is pleasing to God.
Are you in need of Jesus’ help? Take His yoke, “come on to me all ye that are heavy laden….” (Matthew 11:28). Jesus long to put His arm around you but know that God’s easy yoke does not fit on a stiff neck.
