Yoked to Jesus

Are you "Yoked" to Christ?
What does that really mean?
Being yoked to Jesus also means submitting to Jesus.
When I attach myself to Jesus, I am not walking alone but am walking alongside Him.
And when I am yoked, I cannot walk in my own separate way.
In a sense, I am being steered and guided by Jesus himself.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.
Jesus wants us to come to Him and join our burdens to Him.
And when we do that, when we surrender ourselves to Christ, we begin to learn from him.
We become more meek, and more humble of heart. We become more like Jesus.
That’s the positive side of the burdens that we carry.
God is able to use even our sufferings and our struggles to make us more like Christ.
