His Yoke is Easy

"The will of the Father is the yoke He would have us take, and bear also with Him. It is of this yoke that He says, 'It is easy,' of this burden, 'It is light.' He is not saying, 'The yoke I lay upon you is easy, the burden is light'; what He says is, 'The yoke I carry is easy, the burden on My shoulders is light.' With the garden of Gethsemane before Him, with the hour and the power of darkness waiting for Him, He declares His yoke is easy, His burden light."
