Take My Yoke
Victor Hall & Murray Wylie
We’ll recall the words of Jesus, ‘Take My yoke upon you and learn from me … and you will find rest for your souls’. Mall 11:29. A yoke is an instrument of work, not of rest. However, we soon realise that all the power is in the yoke and not in ourselves. Hence we find rest when we are fitted to our proper place by the hand of Christ. Taking Christ’s yoke is not a quaint image of brotherly harmony with Christ. It is the strongest possible reminder that there is no life outside of the corporate body of Christ.
