DAY 11: The Chosen Blended Harmony of the Gospel’s- “Find REST in Jesus’ Yoke Because It’s Easy”


Good evening. Great is His faithfulness.


Readings - Questions from John the Baptist- Matthew 11:2-19- Luke 7:18-35

Woe to Unrepentant Cities- Matthew 11:20-30

The Anointing of Jesus' Feet- Luke 7:36-8:1-3

The Spiritual Family of Jesus- Matthew 12:46-50- Mark 3:31-35- Luke 8:19-21


Rest in Christ- Matthew 11:25-30

 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. 26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. 27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am [a]gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.


Blessed Theophylact notes- that God HIDDEN the mysteries from the wise of the world, not out of malice toward His creatures, but because of their own unworthiness; it was they who chose to trust their own fallen wisdom and judgment rather than God. So it is out of love that God withholds this revelation from those who would scorn it so that they do not receive an even greater condemnation.


The OT teaches us that YOKE can be seen as hardships, burdens, and responsibilities (sources from my Orthodox Study Bible- 3Kg 12:1-11- Jeremiah 34:1-11- Wisdom of Sirach 40:1), but in Christ, the YOKE IS EASY, the power of God works in each person- the reward is greater than any effort man was to put forth. GENTLE- is literally means "MEEK" ...


JESUS' YOKE is the Submission to the Kingdom of God


Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you;


25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,


And be gracious to you;


26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,


And give you peace.” ’
