Abandonment is an Easy Yoke

1/18/2011

“Only where Jesus’ entire commandment and the call to unlimited discipleship remain intact are persons fully free to enter into Jesus’ community. Those who follow Jesus’ commandment entirely, who let Jesus’ yoke rest on them without resistance, will find the burdens they must bear to be light. In the gentle pressure of this yoke they will receive the strength to walk the right path without becoming weary. Jesus’ commandment is harsh, inhumanly harsh, for someone who resists it. Jesus’ commandment is gentle and not difficult for someone who willingly accepts it.” (Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Discipleship)

“For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world.”—1jn5
