Jesus invites believers to know true rest from weariness and burdens, rest that can only be released by learning from Jesus how to live righty with God and with each other. All other ways of living offer what in the end will only be fleeting rest. For those, though, who trustingly heed Jesus’ call, "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,” well, they will find real rest for their souls. Biblical scholar Michael Wilkens writes, Jesus “makes us into the kind of people who love and serve God from a renewed nature under his easy yoke of discipleship” or as his apprentices.
“I am learning from Jesus to live MY life the way JESUS would live my life if JESUS was ME.”
