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.

    Thank you FatherGod,for your son, and your love.

    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

    Let there be no doubt in any true believers heart or mind that it is and alway's has been the religious folks or people who will speak all manner of false accusation's, persecute and put you to death. As it was in the early church, so will it be in like manner. God bless you. Shalom yedda dim.
