God is not inviting us into escape or to unplug but into a place of walking with Him as He does the work. The words he uses is to take His yoke upon us. The yoke is a wooden harness that goes over the neck of oxen as they plow the field. A younger ox was usually yoked with an older stronger ox and the younger oxen would learn to plow in this way. Jesus is asking us to be yoked with him as he does the work. We just walk with him. The field does get plowed and we were a part of His work, but it is light yoked or easy. If we pull ahead of Jesus, we become exhausted and burned out from striving. If we lag behind or refuse to just walk with him, our neck will get sore from being dragged along by the yoke. The key to walk in step with our savior and enjoy the work.
How sweet it is when all the work in our lives begins to originate from that place of rest, just yoked in with the savior. Then, every now and again you will look back over your shoulder and see the fruit of "your labor". You will see that all that has been accomplished could have never happened if you were plowing on your own.
