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.

Discussion for Matthew 11

    Lou; we should never confess defeat when it comes to our salvation, and the things that the Scriptures PLAINLY tell us we have in Christ! Saved from our sins, complete deliverance and freedom and all provided for pertaining to life and piety! The enemy is a liar, and goes about seeking whom he may devour with his lies! Don't listen to him! Believe the Word!

    Penni, we all fall short, because we judge, our nature is sinful. We must strive to be good, and..we will fail, we will never measure up, but we should try anyway. No action on our part, no changes we make, no sacrifice is worthy..we are fallen. Only through Christ, and not through our own doing are we saved, we will still fail, when we believe, but the power of Jesus (God) is above all things.
  • Penni Carter
    Jesus is so clear about our walk in trusting him, but He is also very clear in His stance regarding judgment. We have it easier because Jesus came to the earth in the form of a man to show us how to live. Is it really any wonder that our judgment will be much harder considering we had the truth as a living example. I pray for mercy and grace for our souls. Our world needs to repent.

    These things are hid from the wise and prudent but revealed unto babes, the babes are the H.G, simply b/c he said that which is BORN OF THE SPIRIT is SPIRIT, which are the children of the kingdom that are gonna be born in us via his seed, I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, these are the children that understand everything which is the multiplication of christ, th Children of PROMISE
