11. Come To Me

Whispered And Shouted
by Aaron Shust


Come to Me all you who are weary and burdened
And I will give you rest
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me
For I am gentle and humble in heart
For My yoke is easy
And My burden is light

Behind the Song:
"Every month, my ‘D-group’ would read a chapter from Rob Bell’s book Velvet Elvis and discuss it. After reading each chapter, I would write down corresponding passages in the Bible to study, as well as a verse to commit to memory. The verse that I chose for that day was Matthew 11:28-30. Rob Bell’s chapter for this particular month was called “Yoke,” and it explained how, in Jesus’ time, Rabbis had teachings or perspectives that were, by default, different interpretations of Scripture rather than other Rabbi’s teachings. Each Rabbi’s teaching was called his ‘yoke.’ Up until then, I thought that a ‘yoke’ was simply some sort of harness for oxen. Now it makes even more sense when I consider that Jesus said His yoke was easy. I had put off memorizing the verse and was facing the embarrassing prospect of having to admit I had not properly memorized it. So, I pulled the verse up on my phone (isn’t technology great!) and made up a melody to the verse to help me remember it, and it became this song." - Aaron Shust
