Christ Yoked

To many, the idea of being “yoked” means burdened, restricted and a number of other negative ideas. However, when, we look at the biblical meaning–even the literal one–we are reminded that their owners would often yoke young oxen with an older, more experienced one, which would TEACH the younger one all that it needed to know, aiding it with superior strength. Likewise, when we become–voluntarily–yoked with Christ, our burdens/challenges are, surprisingly, LIGHTENED, and we are given the strength and wisdom to “carry” them more effectively! Our way is made clear! The challenges actually turn into blessings, because we, through a change of mind, see them in a whole new light.
