Topic: Focus on Remaining
Matthew 11:29 “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.”
The calling to be with Christ does not end at spending just some time with Him, it is a calling to remain. The instructions in this opening text are, “take my yoke”, “learn of me”, that is, “be attached to me”, “learn to be as I am”.
To take His yoke means to accept His mantle, an agreement to be His disciple. A disciple does not just learn what His master does, he learns to be like him. Don’t experience God and let go, remain with Him!
Talk to God: Father, help me be yoked to you and to learn from you in Jesus name, amen.
