Shoulder My Yoke

17th Feb 2022

 

Matthew 11: 28-30

Jesus said, 'Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.'




"Shoulder my yoke"

What do you mean?
 You promise to give rest,
then you ask us to
 take up your yoke .
How are  these two
 compatible?

Overburdened with our
 "selves"
weighed down, yet
resting in you
we find a light-heartedness,
a peace
to our souls.
May time stand still
in moments of joy

  1. It's astounding. The one time He talked about His heart, He said he was meek(gentle) and humble(lowly). What an amazing God we serve!
