LIFT UP YOUR HEAD, O YOU GATES

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest”. Matthew 11:28-30

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. “Come unto me”: Jesus showed His authority when He says come unto me. This invitation is unthinkable in the mouth of anyone else but God, and woe to the men who call people to themselves instead of to Jesus! Come’; he drives none away; he calls them to himself. His favorite word is ‘Come.’ Not, go to Moses, peter nor pastor. We must come as disciples to learn, willing to be guided by His yoke - not merely to receive something.

This isn’t a call to a lazy or indulgent life. There is still a yoke to bear and burden to carry. The word easy in Greek which means “well-fitting”. Yet with Jesus, they are easy and light. Jesus yoke is easy, not because it makes lighter demands, but
because it represents entering into a disciple-relationship. If your yoke is hard and your burden is heavy, then we can say that it isn’t His yoke or burden, and you aren’t letting Him bear it with you. Jesus said it plainly: My yoke is easy and my burden is light.


Are you ready to let go of does yoke today and accept the invitation? Because the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.

Prayer:

Purify me, wash me and I will be clean. The LORD is my light and salvation who shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour mine flesh, when your enemies and foes attack you, they will stumble and fall in Jesus name.
