For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Yoke means something that binds or that becomes to heavy to carry

 

In Biblical times all who is weary come to me and rest referred to the people who were overwhelmed with all the laws that the Pharisees were imposing. For today those who are legalistic driven this is a reminder to give it all Jesus and legalism can become burdensome. Romans 3:20 states that no one can be declared righteous in his sight by observing law. The Good news is Jesus promises to all those who come to him that only he can offer rest. Those who are heavy laden are to take his yoke upon them in doing so you will find peace in your life and soul. The Yoke Jesus of Jesus is light and easy to carry because of repentance and faith.

 

1 John 5:3 states For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

Jesus carries our burdens through his perfect obedience to God and his sacrifice for our sins were exchanged and wiped clean.  Rm12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God. We are dealt with by the Holy Ghost who works in all our lives to mold us in the image of Christ. Therefore giving our burdens for him to carry in doing so this gives us peace. Through our obedience we are able to give God the Glory and in return showing him we accept his sacrifice and will live our lives for him.

 To take the Yoke of Christ is to accept his will and his Yoke is easy because of his Love and he will never expect anything from us, it is always there for us we just need to reach out for it. It doesn’t matter what your situation is or what you have done. It is time to let it go and give it all to Jesus, he took the ultimate sacrifice to show us how great his love is, he did so in order to show us that we are to count on him and to lean on him. He doesn’t want us to carry worry, fear or doubt he expects us to hand over all our problems to him so he can handle them,  we are only to trust in him and find comfort knowing our savior lives and cares for us.
