    “It Is Easy” The Medical Missionary, 17, 42, p. 835.

    ALONZO T. JONES

    SAYS Jesus: “My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” And that is the living, present truth. It is, day and night, everlastingly true that his yoke is easy, and his burden is light. Do you say, as some have said, “I have not found it so”? If so, then the difficulty in your case is that you have not his yoke nor his burden on you.MEDM October 21, 1908, page 835.1

    This is as certain as that two and two make four. Look at it: there stands the word of Christ, “My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Will you say that he lied in saying this?—No, no, certainly not. He told the truth.MEDM October 21, 1908, page 835.2

    Very good, then; he told the truth when he said, “My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” And you say that is the truth. Then if you have not found his yoke easy and his burden light, is it not certain that you have not found them at all? If to you his yoke is not easy, and his burden is not light, then is it not perfectly plain that you haven’t his yoke on at all?MEDM October 21, 1908, page 835.3

    There is no dodging this. You can not go along uneasy and galling under the yoke that you are wearing, and bowed down under the burden that you are bearing, and call that the yoke and burden of Christ; for that is not true of his yoke nor of his burden. He says “My yoke is easy, and my burden if light.”MEDM October 21, 1908, page 835.4

    Then, dear soul, take His yoke and his burden. Give to him yours.MEDM October 21, 1908, page 835.5

    “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; ... and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”MEDM October 21, 1908, page 835.6

    It is true, bless the Lord!MEDM October 21, 1908, page 835.7

    “Only with Him” The Medical Missionary, 17, 42, p. 844.

    JESUS says, “Without me ye can do nothing.” But he is gone away; he is not here as he was when he said this. That is all right, however; for it was expedient for us that he should thus go away.MEDM October 21, 1908, page 844.1

    Nevertheless he says: “Be not ye troubled; I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you.”MEDM October 21, 1908, page 844.2

    We are not left comfortless, because he comes to us by the Comforter. And “the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,” shall “abide with you forever.”MEDM October 21, 1908, page 844.3

    The Holy Spirit brings the presence of Christ to the believer, to abide with him forever. “Strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts, ... that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”MEDM October 21, 1908, page 844.4

    The Holy Spirit comes to abide with us forever. The Holy Spirit brings the presence of Christ to abide with us forever. Therefore says Jesus, “I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”MEDM October 21, 1908, page 844.5

    Jesus said, “Without me ye can do nothing.” It is the Holy Spirit only that brings Christ to us. Therefore it is as plain as A B C, and as true as the word of God, that without the Holy Spirit we can do nothing.MEDM October 21, 1908, page 844.6

    Professing religion, joining the church, “working in the cause,” are all “nothing” without the gift, the baptism, the abiding forever, of the Holy Spirit. “Ask, and it shall be given you.” “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.”MEDM October 21, 1908, page 844.7
