Jesus' yoke

February 2008

It’s amazing what you see for the first time when preparing to preach. For me today it was Jesus‘ invitation ’Come to me, take my yoke, it is a light burden'

For - how many years, 40? - I’ve assumed this is a double yoke in which Jesus offers to share the toil of whatever he calls us to. ‘Take on partnership with me’.

No, it is a single yoke, the particular life he gives each of us to live. Discern that, and it will fit you perfectly. If we view it as burdensome, either we have the wrong yoke or we are missing the point somewhere.
