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.

    To love One another as Jesus loves us putting him first and all of the other tanks will be added amen
  • Jonathan drauna for verse 29
    this verse its refers to most of us today that a lot of strees that we have been faces in our everyday living so what god wants to tell u now to care so much of his business and god will care so much for your bussiness too....amen!!!!!!!!.
  • Moses Njenga for verse 29
    In the natural a stronger ox is yorked to a stronger one, in the spiritual JESUS is the stronger one, we are to submit to HIS authority, HIS Lordship, that is when we will learn that HE has provided all things that we will ever need for life and godliness, ie my prosperity, health, joy, all we are needed to do is by faith enter HIS finished work, that is the rest GOD has called us to, halleluya.
  • I found in reading mattthew 11 29,that when we won 't submit to Jesus we become bitter and disrespectful to each other, and fall back in the state which he had delivered us from.at least I think some of us were delivered we forget that our walk is for others to see and here Christ and want who we represents.to be yoked with Christ is peace,love,joy,humility,hope.endure the sufferings of this world.
  • Noloyiso Zanele Xopa for verse 29
    God is Love. He shows this by not giving us any grudges not out daily shortcomings, but persuades us to repent. He focuses on His Mission, without anything distracting Him. That all mankind follow Him.
  • His yoke is his commandment "which is love"we should love others regardless their status,as him'JESUS' sat on table even with taxcollectors. we should accept other people as they are as CHRIST himself accepted us while we w're sinners
