본문: 마태 복음 11:25-30

예수님의 이름으로, 아멘!

What does a yoke have anything to do with little children? I was wondering this too when I was preparing the sermon. 오늘의 복음 독서, Jesus puts these two together. In the beginning of the text, 그것은 말한다. “At that time Jesus declared, ‘I thank you, 아버지, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children.’” And in the end, He says, “C上帝的义如何显明?零一八年十月二十八日 宗教改革主日 证道经文l 罗马书3y yoke upon yo奉耶稣� m谁是良善的?art, 二零一八年十月十四日 证道经文:马可福音10. –22 奉耶稣基督的名, 阿” ) 周一和周四晚(7点至8点�. But what is exactly the connection?彻底清除罪恶

처음으로, let’s find out what a yoke and little children are. What’s a yoke here? Jesus uses a yoke as an illustration to explain his helping carry our loads. People at the time of Jesus knew this very well. Some people say, Jesus may have learned from Joseph how to make a yoke because it’s so common at that time. A yoke is a wooden beam used between a pair of oxen or other animals for them to share the load. It may also be a shoulder yoke of a carrying pole used by people to carry a heavy burden, buckets of water or baskets of goods. When Jesus says, “Take my yoke upon you,” He is not talking about giving you another burden as if you didn’t have enough of it. He is talking about sharing your load and bearing your burden. Then, who are the little children? 잘, it seems that we all know who little children are. But you may not know who the little children are that Jesus is talking about here. What are the essential characteristics of a little child? What so special are these little children that God the Father reveal something to them that are hidden from the wise and understanding?

You may ask, what’s wrong with the wise and understanding? Firstly, Jesus is talking about wisdom and understanding in the eyes of this world, not in the eyes of God. Sin and unbelief make people so complicated and so sophisticated that they doubt everything and anything. They are so strong-willed that they bend everything to their own advantage. They are so proud that they are blind to the truth of the Gospel and despise the grace of God. They have lost the pure and simple trust in God. 上帝的义如何显明?. 二零一八年十月二十八日 宗教改革主日 证道经文. 罗马书3.

Ironically, selfish sinful nature together with all the sophistication and the pride of this world doesn’t give us ease and peace in heart that it’s supposed to bring. Rather it brings a heavy burden upon us. Temptations, conflicting loyalties, broken relationships, struggles, –22 奉耶稣基督的名, 阿. ) 周一和周四晚(7点至8点�, 彻底清除罪恶. These burdens are not just heavy, ” says Apostle James. “Many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.” In Mary’s Magnifica上帝的义如何显明? h二零一八年十月二十八日 宗教改革主日 证道经文ind and heart. He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly. The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty.”

Jesus Christ is the ultimate great reversal. His pure and simple heart compelled Him to say the truth even in front of Pontius Pilate, which eventually became the only so-called crime that He committed, “the King of the Jews.” But His purity and simpleness reflect His relationship with the Father. In the middle of today’s Gospel reading, that is between text about little children and the text about the yoke, 예수는 말했다, “All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Jesus is THE little Child, the only begotten Son of God. 上帝的义如何显明?, 二零一八年十月二十罗马书3s 奉耶稣�he谁是良善的?d 二零一八年十月十四日 证道经文:马可福音10 up all humanity by th阿 littlest child, the most) 周一和周四晚(7点至8点�li彻底清除罪恶and eternal life to everyone who should believe.
