His Yoke is Easy

yoke-burden

“For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
–Matthew 11:30

One of Satan’s most successful lies has been to convince most of mankind that becoming a follower of Jesus Christ is a wearisome burden.

But, as Jesus Himself said (recorded in Matthew Chapter 11), this is definitely NOT true.

Jesus said that His yoke was easy and His burden, light.

But to get this point across–particularly in the last days–is an uphill battle.

Those who are firmly ensnared by the world believe that submitting to ANY yoke is quite the onerous activity–which is a great misconception those who are lost burden themselves with.  IF the lost had ANY inkling of how light the yoke of Jesus is–compared to what they are led to believe–they would move mountains in order to trade their lives now for one which is indescribably better.

Jesus said that his yoke was easy–and the words of Jesus are confirmed elsewhere in God’s Word.

“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”

The vast majority of today’s moderns do not believe that: they feel that becoming a follower of Jesus Christ will suck all of the FUN (Satan’s counterfeit of the more deeply- and completely-felt JOY) out of their lives.

HOWEVER, those who are REAL followers of Jesus Christ can attest that not only is His yoke LIGHT, but the burden is NOT heavy.

This is confirmed in Isaiah 40.

“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.”
–Isaiah 40:4-5

These are NO empty words.  It is unfortunate that more do not take advantage of the offer. But then, it would require little faith if man could SEE the advantages.

When one trades the world for Jesus Christ, one’s way is made smooth by Him who can do it.

DOES believe that Christianty is a life of no fun and drudgery, with little benefit?

WHERE did the reader learn of this supposedly-joyless Christianity?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
