  Who is Your Partner For Life?

Matthew 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."

Prosperity of spirit, soul and body begins and ends with the One who makes all things possible! Jesus said, "Come to me...."

The yoke of Christ is an invitation to partner with Him. Yokes are used to link oxen together so that they, with less effort, can do the work of plowing fields.

When you take Jesus' yoke and begin the work of plowing your fields of life, you will notice that this yoke, unlike any other kind of yoke, is easy. You will also notice that this burden, unlike any other burden, is light. When you ask yourself, “Why is this yoke easy and this burden light?” Look over to your side, and you will see Jesus in the same yoke with you and bearing the same burden with you!

Only when yoked with Jesus will you find rest for your soul – for your mind, will and emotions. Nothing short of walking with Jesus, and learning of Him, will make an everlasting difference. You will be able to be at rest while you live and work.

What is REST?
R - Repentance from sin, labors and heavy burdens. “Change Your Mind”
E - Expectation of a new life through faith in God and the obedience to the Gospel
S - Salvation and living is by grace through faith and not of yourselves. Receive the gift of God.
T - Testify of the goodness of God. 

REFLECTION QUESTION: What difficult things or heavy burdens would become easy or light if you were yoked to Jesus while doing it?
