” Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Come to Jesus Christ . His yoke is His word. Learn His words because they are not to understand.
The spoken teaching of Jesus Christ as recorded in the New Testament is the sole authoritative principle of life and the absolute standard of morality. His words must be taken literally and personally with the help of the Holy Spirit. The Truth is given to set us free. Knowing the Truth will make us free. Once you are confronted by Christ, the Truth our minds will be free to absorb and react to His voice without preconceived idea from your religion of choice.
Jesus had spoken to several people during His earthly ministry. Many of them took His words literally. They did not asked for secondary opinion about the words they heard from Jesus. If they needed some clarification, they would ask Jesus for further explanation. The disciples were taught and trained by their Master with His teachings. Jesus spoke slowly in an easy manner to understand. It is a lie to say that the words of Christ is hard to understand and complicated. He told His disciples that His burden is light and His yoke is easy.
Here are the reasons why it is hard for some to understand the words of Christ.
1. Jesus is mainly a spiritual teacher. He wanted to give a “spiritual experience” before He feeds you with spiritual food. A born-again experience is a must in the learning of the Truth. It is hard to understand His words with a negative mentality.
2. If you have a pre-conceived idea or frame of mind from any religious group or organization. You mind would be limited, you can only think within the perimeter allowed by your religious affiliation. You would filter every word of Christ through the accepted church doctrines.
3. The lack of true love for Christ. Jesus said, “If you love me, follow my commandments.” If you really love Christ, He will be the center and focus of you life and nothing else. Your love for Peter, Paul or Mary would not be ahead or above Christ. The words of Christ are complete and there is no need to add new revelation. Be rooted on His words. His words are few but satisfyingly everlasting.
