Rest

My Yoke is Easy and My Burden Is Light
Everybody wants to go to heaven.
Sadly, most people are not willing to do what it takes to get there. We think that it is too difficult because we have to stop sinning. They say sin is human nature , and if there is anything difficult to do , it’s going against your nature.
In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus says that his yoke is easy and his burden light.
Many of us find this difficult to believe. We think that we don’t have any burdens, that Jesus’ burden is heavier than ours.
But if you think about it, you’ll find that this verse is true. The thing is, we have been carrying our burdens so long we have become used to them.
Consider this, you’ve been standing for hours doing something, you don’t really feel tired because you’ve gotten used to it. However, when you sit down you experience rest and realize that you were indeed more tired than you thought.
That’s what happens when you come to Jesus. You realize that you were indeed heavy laden and are now experiencing rest.
Let go of those burdens you’re carrying and take on Christ’s yoke. You’ll find that life is easier when you follow the instructions of your creator.
