Christian Devotion on putting on Jesus' Yoke
"...Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy-laden and
overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] Take My yoke
upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and
humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief
and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed
quiet) for your souls. For My yoke is wholesome (useful,
good-not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable,
gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light
and easy to be borne..." - Matthew 11:28-30 (AMPC)
How we need a place to go to rest and be refreshed.
Our lives can be so hectic and stressful. We need
to come to Jesus every day for that refreshment.
It's so comforting to know that Jesus will ease our
load. He says to take His yoke upon us and learn of
Him. We so often carry such heavy burdens that the Lord
never intended us to carry. Under these burdens we are
weighed down, but His burden is light and easy to be borne.
If you are feeling weighted down with many burdens, give
it over to Jesus. Take His yoke upon you and find
relief for your soul.
Jesus can ease your heavy load
When upon yourself, you put on His yoke.
