The Yoke of Jesus Versus the Yoke of Church

The yoke of Jesus is light (Matthew 11:28-30).  The yoke of church has proven to be burdensome, just like the yoke of Moses’ law which preceded it (Acts 15:10).  The yoke of Moses’ law was to last approximately 1,500 years – that is, from the time of Moses to the time of Christ.  The yoke of church was to last but a generation, for it was a first fruits of the kingdom of God.  Both yokes were to give way to the yoke of Christ’s kingdom.

Jesus has been revealed to be God.  He is thus omnipresent and omniscient.  He would have us think every thought for His pleasure.  Does this seem like a burdensome yoke?  Only to those who have not attempted it.

Do you want a better relationship with God?  Cast away all other yokes and wear only the yoke of the kingdom of heaven.  This is right relationship with Him.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
