Could it be that His kingdom is not of this world, with all it's burdens which "weigh" heavy on those that worship the created, rather than the created.
That taking on His "yoke" is actually an act of surrender.

Oakback,

I agree his kingdom is not of this world, it seems to me that there can be a difference to obeying God's commandments in the spirit and striving to be a good christian which becomes a lifestyle thing and following a set of rituals that you perform to pay God back for not sending you to hell. In the desire to please you can take on the yoke of christianity.

Matt 19:7 Mat 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.


Mat 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,


Mat 19:19 Honour thy father and [thy] mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

International Standard Version (©2008)
Rev 14:12 Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to their faithfulness in Jesus:
