Jesus said,''Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart'' [Matthew 11;29]. Practically, we can only be united to Christ, by taking His yoke upon us, which denotes submission to His will, and subjection to His authority, in order to be ruled by Him. Not until we have voluntarily taken His yoke, can we experimentally learn of Him. And we need to be taught this ''For I am meek and lowly in heart. Meekness is the opposite of self-assertiveness, and yet, is a force. Our Lord was humble, and it behooves us, as His children, to imitate our Lord, in His humility. God hates all forms of pride-pride of race, pride of grace, and pride of face.
