A Rest For Your Soul-Part 10

May 30, 2014


Matthew 11:30 “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

The highest part of our being is our spirit. We are made up spirit, soul, and body. Our spirit is where our conscience is, it is where our intuition is, it is where you and I fellowship (commune) with God. To be under yoke in Bible times means to be in submission. To be more and more in submission to God, we find increasing rest. To be under yoke in Bible times also speaks of service, submission and service, but listen, the ox and the yoke are a picture of patient, steady, God appointed labor. My friend, anything God brings your way will be good for you. In this world we will have trials and tribulations, but be of good cheer for He has overcome the world. John 16:33 - These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” He did not call us to be successful…He called us to be faithful.
