Here are some famous words of Jesus followed by a comment by Professor Paul Tillich:

“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:  and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

“The yoke of Jesus is….a new reality, a new being and a new power of transforming life…Suddenly, within the hardest struggle, it appears as a victory, not attained by ourselves, but present beyond expectation and struggle…the truth of life is in us, with an illuminating certainty, uniting us with ourselves, giving us great and restful happiness.”
