Question 361

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? What did Jesus mean in Matthew 11:30?

Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.


To put it simply in V30 The Lord Jesus is saying that HIS YOKE (Salvation) that HE OFFERS is easy to receive BY SIMPLY “Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ”.

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

and HIS BURDEN is in reference to OUR SERVICE to him, it is light (Not a Burden) when WE ARE IN and DOING the Will of the Lord and serving him as WE SHOULD.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins. the MOMENT you believe(TRUST in Christ ALONE) you receive eternal life.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
