Pentecost 7: His Yoke is Easy
The Christian finds rest in Jesus. Our health can burden us, and not only when we grow older. The world burdens us with worries and work. Worst of all, our sins burden our consciences, dragging us down. But Jesus gives us rest from our burdens, rest from our battles, and rest forever in heaven. This week he invites us to "take his yoke," the "yoke" of trusting in him. This is a "burden" that is light.
