Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 11:29-30 (KJV); Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light
Every man under the face of the earth is under a yoke of some kind.
Our Lord tells us to take His yoke. He adds and says, “Learn of me.”
When he says, ‘take my yoke,’ he is telling us to learn from him.
Child of God, the burden you carry for the gospel must come because of a certain knowledge that you have of God.
If you have a burden which is not a result of the CONVICTIONS, INSTRUCTIONS and TEACHINGS of Christ, then you are like those whom Paul says have zeal without knowledge.
They preach every day, give to the ministry, fast and pray but look like they are struggling under a yoke that is not of Christ.
Any man who has not been taught of Christ and learnt from Him is not carrying the yoke of the master.
FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 4:20-21, Romans 10:2
The burden you carry for the gospel must come because of a certain knowledge that you have of God.
PRAYER: My gracious Lord, I thank you for this word for today. I know that I am taught of you and everything I do in the gospel has its affirmation in the Word. I spend and I am spent because I know and have tasted of the wonderful treasures of Christ. I took your yoke and by it I found rest.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
