Jeremiah 6:16,

This is what the Lord says:

"Stand at the crossroads and look;

ask for the ancient paths,

ask where the good way is, and walk in it,

and you will find rest for your souls."

Matthew 11:29-30 (ESV),

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,

for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

What is the yoke of Christ?

The Two Yokes
Issues of life The Yoke of the World The Yoke of Christ
How much is enough? Just a little bit more...

(never enough riches, honor, esteem, control...)

Christ is my sufficiency...

(2 Cor. 12:9, Phil. 4:10-13, Col. 2:9-15)

Dealing with Sin Devil: Knows your name, calls you by your sin. God: Knows your sin, calls you by your name
