“Salvation does not come on one’s terms or on one’s own merits (Romans 3-5). Jesus calls this self-denial... Salvation is a gift that God bestows to the one who knows the need for it, who knows one cannot provide it for oneself.” (Darrell Bock, Luke v.1)
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:29-30)
