How is it that Christ’s yoke is easy and His burden is light? The key is realizing Who we are being yoked to. As we are yoked together with the Lord Jesus, He does the heavy lifting — He is the One who carries the weight and responsibility of fulfilling God’s commands. He does in and through us what we could never do on our own.
What is the fruit of a life that has come to Jesus and taken His yoke? The fruit of being yoked with Christ is rest and peace. In contrast, when we are walking in our own strength and effort, we are burdened down with anxiety, worry, and fear. Be encouraged as you listen to these episodes to come to Jesus and learn of Him.
