Yokes are not something that modern and contemporary societies know too much about. However, yokes were used a lot in times past. Mainly to gather more strength by teaming up two animals of like nature and stature. This would enable them to have more power for certain task. Be it farming, pulling or moving heavy items, etc... As followers of Jesus Christ we are too "yoke up" with Jesus and be a formidable force that the world needs. However, they are some "yokes" that we aren't suppose to take up. Today's message is about finding what not to "yoke up" with and how we are too "yoke up" with Jesus and with one another.

My Yoke is light: easy to be carried
