Yoked with Jesus

 Matthew 11:29 29 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. (NIV)

A yoke links 2 animals together so they share equally in their work.  As co-heirs of Jesus we not only share equally in the privilege of being children of the Father, God, but we are to share equally in the work of Jesus.  His work was to bring glory to God the Father and bring God the Father to the people.  We cannot do this work without being yoked to Jesus.  Our yoke is in the form of the Holy Spirit Who the Father sent to dwell in each of the believers in Jesus to enable them to communicate with Him and serve Him.  We must ask if we are trying to witness of God on our own or if we are staying in our yoke with Jesus through the Holy Spirit.  When we are in the yoke with Jesus no burden is too much for us to bear.
