Cast Your Burdens to the LordFeb 28, 2023
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
A yoke was harness oxen and other animals used to ease hauling a load. It was also meant as a designation of servitude and carrying the burden of a task or mission. 💔
we take the Savior’s yoke upon us and do his will. We will find the peace and joy that he has promised.
How far could you carry this burden before stopping to rest? 😴
There are many kinds of loads or burdens. Some are physical, while others are spiritual or emotional and not as easy to see. Many unseen burdens can exceed our strength to bear them alone, and we become weary. This lesson discusses how the Lord can lighten our burdens and bring us rest. 😎
Jesus invites us to take his yoke upon us and learn of him.
In the same way, when we trudge through life without God’s guidance, we “are of all men most miserable.” (1 Corinthians 15:19). By accepting Jesus’ yoke instead, we allow Him to walk with us and share the load. 😅
Taking His yoke doesn’t mean holding onto the things that weigh us down, like unforgiveness, bitterness, and shame. Instead, taking His yoke gives us freedom from these things as we humble ourselves before Him. 😄
