2014 Lenten Devotional - The Fifth Sunday, April 6

The Fifth Week: The Challenges

“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 11:29-30

As we move ever deeper into this Lenten journey we have to face the challenges that discipleship involves. Jesus portrays some of them very clearly in this image of His yoke. A yoke is something carried not alone but always in conjunction with another, in this instance, Jesus.

In prayer today let us consider our response to Him.
