Quote #1. Mat 11:28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
As safety, security and belonging needs are met, curiosity emerges. Research shows that only 17% of church attenders participate in Sunday School, bible study or any learning event outside of worship.
The yoke of learning from Jesus is easy and light … but it is still a yoke. It is an expectation of a disciple.
