Matthew 11:30 For My Yoke Is Easy And My Burden Is Light.
In our pain, we do not think any yoke is easy nor any burden light. In our pain, we unfortunately and incorrectly think our pain, our burdens, and our imprisonment is from Christ. The Truth: Our pain is from Satan. Our burdens are from Satan. Our imprisonment is from Satan. Every bit of pain, suffering, and darkness in our life is from Satan, NOT from Christ. Yes, Christ does call us to carry His burden but His burden is not like the burden of our personal sin and darkness. The burden of Christ empowers us. The burden of Christ gives us a view of the reality of our beautiful eternity. The yoke of Christ does not imprison us. The yoke of Christ liberates us. The yoke and burden of Christ gives us comfort and rest even in the middle of our pain.
