Jesus promised His yoke would be easy and His burden would be light. Many Christians, however, do not find it that way. They have found Christian living to be very, very hard. I am convinced they don’t really know how to live the Christian life. They have never been taught.
Christian living is not about trying really hard to be good. It is about being transformed. Caterpillars don’t get from Canada to Mexico by trying really hard. They get there by being transformed into Monarch butterflies. Then, they just do what butterflies do every year. How are we transformed? The Table of Contents tells the story:
