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.

  • 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.
