A study guide for the book by the same title.
Is Christian living easy or hard?
Is it easy or hard for you to live the Christian life?
I have asked this question to thousands of Christians and consistently they will answer with resolve, “Hard!”
Then, I show them this familiar verse:
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”Matthew 11:30 (NIV2011)
I ask again, wording the question slightly differently, “Did Jesus teach that following Him would be easy or hard?” Puzzled looks.
I never get an explanation this complete, but it seems they are saying, “I don’t care what that verse says, believe me, Christian living is very, very hard.” Perhaps it is hard because we have never been taught.
We have never been taught to be train ourselves to be godly.
We have never been taught to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
We have never been taught the power of habit.
We have never been taught that we become what we behold.
You are about to be taught.
Jesus yoke is about to become easy, as He said it would be.
