Matthew 11:16-30 “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,” said Jesus. “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Jesus’ yoke was a cross! How could it be easy and light? Did Jesus know something we don’t know? Did he hear something we don’t hear? Dance is bondage that is freedom, and labor that is rest. Love makes yokes easy and burdens light… but you can’t dance if you don’t hear the music. A man who picks up the yoke of a cross can no longer justify himself. He has no past to defend and no future to create, only an infinitely small burden called NOW. Now we hear the music. Now we are free. Now we know Jesus. Only now can we dance.
