Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
So often I fear that we have lost this beautiful message. It is almost like we want to lure them to Jesus with the message and then add burdens on them that we have not been able or willing to bear. Notice what happens in the verse.
He calls us to Himself. He promises to give us rest.
Then He tells us that as we serve Him and follow Him that we will learn and serve while finding rest for our souls.
He says that His burden is light and His yoke is easy.
Is that how we preach it??
