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.

    Simply to believe, pray,praise and have faith in Jesus Christ daily.Then fast whenever the Holy spirit guides you too.Following Him as an example because that was His Nature.God bless you.
  • Rev. Booker T. Simmons's
    What I personal think of Matthew 11:30, is, when I have Jesus caring my yoke and burden, my load is lighter and burden is not heavy. Thank God for his gift in giving Jesus to forgive us for our sins. Jesus life death burial and resurrection is our redeeming life. May grace mercy and truth be with his believing people of God. Amen.
