What does Jesus mean by: “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Jesus said: “Take my yoke upon you . . . for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” But being “yoked” usually implies a heavy burden. Yet, Jesus gives us the image of being yoked alongside Him while He is the One pulling the load. It’s as if we are along for a scroll next to Him and watching as He moves mountains.

Christ, our provision: Jesus feeds 5,000 by miraculously multiplying five loaves and two fish (part 1)

In a display of His supernatural provision, Jesus feeds 5,000 men by breaking “only” five loaves and two fishes. It’s easy to look at the “only” in what we see or have, and miss what is available to us through Jesus. It’s not about what we can do with what we have—but Who we know and what He can do through us.
