The word yoked has had different meanings or implications through the ages. Today people will say of someone who is very muscular that they are yoked. In Jesus day yoke meant something different, a yoke was used to harness two animals together for the purpose of work. Jesus declared in Matt 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” NKJV.
Being yoked to Jesus and His Word and ways is an easy and light burden and the blessings are above and beyond all we could ask or think. You will be encouraged and challenged as you listen and apply this message to your life.
