Matthew 11:29 (NLT) (Jesus said) Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
(The Message) Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
The “rest for your soul” that Christ offers to us is the release from self-effort, the need to respond to every situation with every arsenal in our bag of supplies, the need to take responsibility for the sins of others, the need to live in perfection in order to satisfy God, the need to fix everything all the time. That is NOT His yoke. Being yoked with Christ is learning to follow His lead—an “unforced rhythm” of life. How are you doing with that? “Learn of me” (KJV).
