The Easy Yoke

Jesus said: “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Personal experiences have given this verse a different and even more profound meaning than what it has conveyed before in my grace walk. Jesus has experienced every affliction, tribulation and hardship we will ever endure in this life. When we by faith accept that He lives as us we come to acknowledge that He is perfectly capable of going through those periods as us, in us. We just let go in faith and leave the reins to Him who also was perfected through what He suffered. Our sufferings are made lighter and their often paralyzing power is powdered when He undergoes them as us. We simply abide in Him.
