“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 11:29 KJV. As wonderful as the invitation of Jesus is, to ‘Come unto Me’, we also should realize that when we come to Him there are some things He asks us to do. Today there is much confusion in religion because many people are told there is nothing for them to do. Because Jesus did everything for us, we simply have to accept it. But that is true only in one sense. Certainly, He did all of that glorious work of atonement for us that we could never do. But then, He calls us to do many things! He calls us to believe and put our faith in Him. He calls us to follow Him. Here in this passage, even as He calls us to Himself where we can find rest for our souls, He tells us to “Take My Yoke upon you”. But how many are willing in this day of pride and self exaltation, to take upon ourselves the meek and lowly Spirit of our Lord? How many are willing to decrease so that He can increase in us? Are we willing to yoke ourselves with Jesus so that He can lead us always in His will and way? Let us obey His command and experience the true rest for our souls that Jesus has for us.
