Two Yokes

Yoke 1 - The Law of Moses - the Unbearable Yoke

Acts 15:5 - But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.

Acts 15:10 - Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?

Yoke 2 - The "Rest" Offered by Jesus - the Light and Easy Yoke

Matthew 11:28-30 - Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (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. (30) For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

There are those today who desire to put believers under the UNBEARABLE YOKE of the Law. Legalists want to command you to keep that which Jesus said He came to fulfill.

On the other hand, Jesus invites us to come to Him and take His LIGHT AND EASY YOKE and receive His rest.

Which YOKE do you want?
