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.

    I' m to be yoked up with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to be yoked with believers : to not be unequally yoked with unbelievers : I can have no fellowship with the works of darkness : not possible. I get myself yoked up with Jesus : we have fellowship and working toward a common goal !!! With believers in Lord Jesus Christ we are going and doing good !!
