People's Bible Notes for Matthew 11:30


Mt 11:30 For my yoke [is] easy. The yoke that sin imposes is heavy, and bearing it brings no rest. So, too, the yoke of false or corrupted religion is burdensome; but Christ's yoke is easy. It is not hard to bear it because it is borne in love. My burden is light. His burden, even if it be the cross, is light, because he helps us to bear it. Note: That one rejecting Christ in the midst of light is worse than a heathen. Christ graciously invites all to come to him. He is the rest of the soul.

    God all throughout the Scripture uses man to fulfill His Will. He always encourages us by showing us that like us these men have short comings. Yet God uses them anyway, be encouraged God will use us in the same way that He has used other men with faults.

    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!!

    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".

    Matthew 11 is far reaching and very revealing. Our Lord Jesus Christ gave a food for thought
