I have noticed before the direct connection of Yeshua’s famous quote, “Come unto Me, all who labor….” and Jeremiah 6:16’s ‘..you shall find rest for your souls,’ but this morning I saw another close connection in Jeremiah 5:5. Here, ‘the way of the Lord’ and ‘ordinances,’ clearly meaning Torah, are described as a ‘yoke’ the people refused.
There is little difference today as the Word of the Lord calls out for obedience to the everlasting Covenant, but people refused, preferring the traditions of men.
Dear followers of Jesus, soften your hearts and cry out for the Living Waters of righteousness, the good way, and walk in it!!!
