Wesley's Notes for Matthew 11:29


11:29 Take my yoke upon you - Believe in me: receive me as your prophet, priest, and king. For I am meek and lowly in heart - Meek toward all men, lowly toward God: and ye shall find rest - Whoever therefore does not find rest of soul, is not meek and lowly. The fault is not in the yoke of Christ: but in thee, who hast not taken it upon thee. Nor is it possible for any one to be discontented, but through want of meekness or lowliness.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 11:29


Mt 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me. He has first asked us to come, and made a gracious promise. He next shows us how to come. We are to come by taking HIS yoke upon us. Taking on the yoke is a symbol of submission. The two steps by which we come, and secure the promise of "rest unto our souls" are then (1) Submission to Christ, (2) Becoming his disciples.

    Matt 11:28 in comparison's to the references of other scriptures such as Paul's defence of his lite affliction's, being ship wretched, beaten with a whip, mocked, abandoned and much more. Casting our cares upon the Lord Jesus is part of our servival tactic that we are constantly to be mindful of. Our burdens are no more at the promise of our Lord!!
  • Michael W. Gephart
    Here is how I interpret Math, 11:11. Jesus taught that we don't go to heaven just as we are.
    We must first be "transformed" into more "perfect" beings. He pointed out that, even though John the Baptist was the most "perfect" man who ever walked the face of the earth, compared
    to the least ("transformed") person in heaven, he is still "lesser".
