We exchange the yoke of sin and despair for the yoke of freedom in Christ. Yet men find it difficult to submit to liberty in Christ in exchange for the bondage of sin.

The yoke of Christ is included in the redemption of our soul. Salvation must be accepted into a willing heart. Exchanging the yoke of sin for a yoke of eternal life.

For the cause of Christ

Someone egged your post. ;)

It's worthwhile to consider what Jesus says immediately prior to this statement: "Come to Me, all you who are weary and heavy laden". Jesus' yoke is lighter than what they were currently bearing. That context is important to correct interpretion.

Totally agree. The yoke of bondage to the law and spiritually inept/corrupt leadership.

LOL. How embarrassing. Blame this Smart TV. Typing with the microphone has mixed results and editing is necessary and I don't catch them all.

In such cases, I blame the autocorrect function, aka Otto the Incorrect.

I did not even know people are on here talking their messages. Am I the only one still typing on a computer?

Being yoked to Christ to handle what we cannot handle like an older ox that gets yoked to a young ox and plows with it until the young ox can do it on it's own.

Being yoked to Jesus is an easier lifestyle with less worries than being on our own.

Isa 28:11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
Isa 28:12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

Col 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon,

or of the sabbath days:

Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

When you receive the Spirit then you are yoked to Jesus and this is the rest and the refreshing, and a spiritual sabbath, but some would not hear.

Its linked to the New Covenant that was promised to Israel in Hebrews 8:8.

The Law was a heavy yoke on them, but if they are willing to, as a nation, accept Christ as their Messiah, a new covenant will be inaugurated with Israel and God, where the Law will be written into their hearts, and they will automatically be able to keep it.

That is when the yoke will become easy.

Matthew 11:

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

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

I believe the reason His yoke is easy and His burden light is because He helps us with our burdens. He shares our load ... not that He gives us more burdens ... although as we are freed from the bondage of sin, we are more capable in serving Him.



I also love the verse right before these 3 verses:

Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Wanna know the Father? ask the Son to reveal Father ...
