And we urge you, brothers…help the weak... 1 Thessalonians 5:14
Are you feeling weak? Tired? Stressed? Overwhelmed? Burdened? I think it would be an injustice to not help you in the best way possible.
And that is to lead you to the Helper.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Now notice what Jesus says – he doesn’t say that first he’s going to give us his yoke…but first tells us to come to Him and then take it. He tells us to take his yoke.
If you’re feeling weak – I encourage you to take His yoke.
What is a yoke? It’s the wooden plank that runs across the shoulders of animals as they farm the land. It helps keep them align. If one cow turns, they both do. Jesus is tell you to take His yoke. Take up Jesus’ way of life. Waking up early in the morning – before everyone else and all the distractions come – and praying, talking with GOD (Mark 1:35). Sacrificing of your time, energy and resources for others.
Read the Bible and discover Jesus’ way of life – go to Him – and take His yoke. Stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Him as he leads you, lightly, through life.
I encourage you to do this – to approach the Helper – if you are feeling weak.
And most of all – to give your life to Him. Make Him King. It’s the weak He died for – us - so that we could have life. Believe it and make Him the King of your life.
I did :)
SO MUCH FREEDOM! He loves you :) Take his yoke because His burden is light.
What ways of Jesus’ life do you need to take up? In all honesty, we should take up all of them – but which one are you going to focus on this week?
