A yoke is meant to join two plowing animals: one more experienced, and the other less so. We are yoked to Jesus, and it is by this partnership, this synergy, that we learn to love what he loves, to desire what he desires, and to live in him as he lives in us. While our effort plays a part in this synergy, Jesus ultimately desires our surrender into an effortless gentleness that lives and breathes the gentleness of God.
