The way to steadfastly keep up the remainder he gives is offered by Jesus. Listen, “Take my yoke upon you. I want to instruct you because I am meek and tender, and you will discover rest for your own spirits” (Matthew 11:29 The Book).
In that day to take the yoke of another meant to come under that man’s leadership and walk in his footsteps. Jesus was a meek and gentle teacher. He explained, “My yoke fits perfectly and the burden I give you is light” (Matthew 11:30 the Novel). The yoke, what Jesus teaches and needs, is great, useful and wholesome. Never pressing, hard, sharp and harsh, but comfortable, gracious and agreeable! (Amplified Bible) The burden he gives is light and easy to take.
