XIX. The Easy Yoke and the Light Burden.

MATT. xi. 30. “For My yoke is easy, and My burden is
light.”

I. THE yoke of Christ is easy, and His burden is light,
because we bear it with the approbation of conscience. A
burden which does not consist of sin is never heavy.
II. This yoke is easy because it is borne in love.
III. Christ’s yoke is easy and His burden is light because
it is borne with the help of the Spirit of God.
IV. Christ’s words are true because His burden becomes
lighter the longer it is borne.
V. Christ’s yoke is easy and His burden light because
we are sustained under it by a good hope. Heaven and
endless happiness is reserved for us.
