No matter who we are or how far along we are in our faith journeys, we can all sense that there is a gap between the life we long to live and the life we actually do live. We long to close the gap, yet even our best efforts fall well short of the life we sense we were designed for. The yoke and its principles are good news for those unmet longings.

Session 1 – The Great Invitation

Jesus’ yoke is central to understanding the life Jesus is calling us to live. The yoke may be a strange, distant metaphor for many of us, but, through this study you will see that Jesus has not just invited you to follow a list of rules, but enter into life with Him, side by side, eye to eye, as He leads you to the life you long for. Jesus’ Great Invitation in Matthew 11:28-30 is the invitation back into the life you were made for, an invitation to return to the life you long for. Entering the yoke is how we actually can live the life we long to live.
