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.

  • HARRY MISANJE for verse 30
    Jesus is saying my yoke is easy, the pain you get for being obedient Is less in comparing to being disobedient
  • MockingBird for verse 30
    Sin is a heavy burden to bear . Fight the good fight of faith. It is from time to time hard to do what God says but the rewards are out of this world . I choose life and I choose life more abundantly in the Lord Jesus . I would rather do what is hard to do and get rest and assurance than carry the burden of sin . Sin always takes you farther than you want to go.
  • Cheryl. C. for verse 30
    Jesus came to give us life : Life : not death. The way of a transgressor is hard .The yoke that Jesus has mapped out for us; as He says is light. We do not have to serve the Lord alone ; He has given us of Holy Spirit to help and guide us. You cannot serve God apart from His word ,or from Holy Spirit ,or from Jesus Christ.
  • God has given me a message on THE GATES. Onegate is wide and one is narrow. As we stand in the gate line waiting to reach our detestation we can be carrying a light load or a heavy load. Like this verse says His burden is light cause when we carry Jesus in our hearts we have joy, peace, love, goodness,kindness,patience, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. when we don't have Jesus in our heart we have heaviness like depression, loneliness,no peace, things things weigh us down because sin is dark and heavy to carry. Thank God for His love for us to take our sin to the cross. Keep our eyes on Jesus then we will reach our final detestation. Amen
  • Tramaine for verse 30
    My children and I went to a fast food restaurant for dinner and being that I am a single parent of four, money has always (in the past-we speak in faith) been an issue. So I (talking to myself in a low voice) said- "man I have so much to pay for. I have electric this check, and rent, and car insurance, and so on..." My oldest daughter heard me and asked- "mommy, everything is so hard for you. Its hard for you to pay bills and get us things we want. You need help." When she said that to me, my inside crumbled because my flesh agreed and for a split second I was depressed about how their fathers left me for dead with four kids to raise. But then I felt the greater side of me- my spirit leap up and say this very verse- "my yoke is easy and my burden is light." I said to my daughter, "Sweetheart, yes-mommy does need help. But Jesus is my Help." The sweet Holy Spirit reminded me that He was with me through that all and has never left me. That is what I think this message means.
