Matthew 11:29

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. [NIV]

Tayo struggled with Further Maths in School until his last semester. When he saw that he scored A, he wondered why then he had failed this same subject all those years. Then suddenly, it dawned on him; they had a new teacher that semester.

Tayo realised he never really liked Mr. Timo. Tayo saw him as arrogant and saucy. This, unknown to Tayo affected his understanding of Mr. Timo's lectures. Mr. Kola, the new teacher was approachable and humble. He smiled at students and made sure they understood his lectures.

The Law is the teacher of the Old Testament follower of God. Grace is the Teacher of the New Testament follower of God. Scriptures tell us that those who were under the Law were under 'tutors and governors' until the time appointed. (Gal. 4:1-5). And Tit. 2:11-12 tells us that the Grace of God that brings Salvation teaches us now.

In our main text today, the Lord Jesus tells us He is gentle and humble in heart as He encourages us to come and learn from Him. The Holy Spirit, our Teacher is also the Comforter (Joh 14:26).

When the Law teaches, it leaves you with a feeling of dread and helplessness. Grace deepens your understanding and makes power available to do what is right. Scriptures said in Rom 8:3-4 that what the law could not do, God did by sending His own Son (Grace personified).

Go into today, ready to learn from Grace. If you have a besetting sin, ask the Holy Spirit to deepen your understanding and empower you to overcome.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, I desire a better walk with God. Teach me by your Grace. Make it easy for me, O Lord for Your yoke is easy and Your burden, light. Amen.
