Take The Yoke Of Jesus

Posted by Cheryl on July 2, 2014 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Good Morning***Have A Wonderful Day***Rest; "Take My Yoke:" Jesus invites us all who are burdened individuals to come to Him for rest, yet so often we misunderstand what He is offering. When stresses and problems weigh us down, the most natural response is to ask the Lord for relief: “Lord, I can’t carry this anymore. I’m going to leave it here with you.” Having dumped the burden like a bag of garbage, we walk away but remained unchanged inside, and feel as if the Lord did nothing to help, and give up.

The Lord doesn’t work that way. Christ’s invitation is to join Him in the yoke so you can walk and work together. He doesn’t want just your burden; He wants you! The yoke of Christ is a symbol of discipleship, characterized by submission and obedience to Him. The Lord's goal isn’t simply to give relief by removing a weighty trial or affliction; He will work with you through the trial and/or burden. Stay with him in a close and trusting relationship.

The process of lightening the load begins with learning to know and understand the Lord, how do we do this? We learn more about the Lord by reading the word, prayer, and fellowship with the brethren the like-minded brethren. The burden is not necessarily removed, but our thoughts and responses are changed as we begin to love Him, trust Him, believe His promises, and rely on him. Then, as the weight of the affliction shifts from our shoulders to His, we will feel relief, although the situation may remain unchanged.

Being yoked with Christ results in rest for your soul. It means having a permanet helper who truly loves you. Life’s pressures may not lessen, but if you are intimately linked with Jesus who truly loves you, your soul is free from churning anxiety, pressure and His peace is ruling in your heart.


Our Lesson: Jump into His yoke. You have nothing to lose except your weariness, your anxiety, and much to gain, peace, rest, a big smile.


Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

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

 

1John 5:1 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.

1John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

1John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

1John 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

 

Philippians 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Philippians 4:10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

 

Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Heb 12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

 

 

Love,

Cheryl

O JESUS, THOU ART STANDING


O Jesus, Thou art standing, outside the fast closed door,

In lowly patience waiting to pass the threshold o’er:

Shame on us, Christian brothers, His Name and sign who bear,

O shame, thrice shame upon us, to keep Him standing there!

O Jesus, Thou art knocking; and lo, that hand is scarred,

And thorns Thy brow encircle, and tears Thy face have marred:

O love that passeth knowledge, so patiently to wait!

O sin that hath no equal, so fast to bar the gate!

O Jesus, Thou art pleading in accents meek and low,

“I died for you, My children, and will you treat Me so?”

O Lord, with shame and sorrow we open now the door;

Dear Savior, enter, enter, and leave us nevermore.

 

JESUS I AM RESTING


Jesus, I am resting, resting,

In the joy of what Thou art;

I am finding out the greatness

Of Thy loving heart.

Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee,

And Thy beauty fills my soul,

For by Thy transforming power,

Thou hast made me whole.

Jesus, I am resting, resting,

In the joy of what Thou art;

I am finding out the greatness

Of Thy loving heart.

O, how great Thy loving kindness,

Vaster, broader than the sea!

O, how marvelous Thy goodness,

Lavished all on me!

Yes, I rest in Thee, Belovèd,

Know what wealth of grace is Thine,

Know Thy certainty of promise,

And have made it mine.

Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus,

I behold Thee as Thou art,

And Thy love, so pure, so changeless,

Satisfies my heart;

Satisfies its deepest longings,

Meets, supplies its every need,

Compasseth me round with blessings:

Thine is love indeed!

Ever lift Thy face upon me

As I work and wait for Thee;

Resting ’neath Thy smile, Lord Jesus,

Earth’s dark shadows flee.

Brightness of my Father’s glory,

Sunshine of my Father’s face,

Keep me ever trusting, resting,

Fill me with Thy grace
