Come to me...and I will give you rest. True rest only comes from Jesus. He is the source of rest, and the only way for us to have that rest is to come to him. Therefore, the result of our coming to him is finding rest. Take my yoke...learn from me. As I understand it, the 'yoke' could refer metaphorically to teaching. So Jesus is explaining that taking his yoke means learning from him. Why should we learn from Jesus? Why should he be our teacher? Because he is not proud like the Pharisees and religious leaders of the day, but rather says I am gentle and lowly in heart. Because of Jesus' gentleness, we know that hs yoke is easy and his burden is light. Jesus calls us to come from him, to trust in him an dmake him our master and teacher because he knows that he will give us rest for our weary souls. We can find it nowhere else, though we would seek it in desert lands. He is inviting us to drink deeply of his grace so that our souls may thirst no more.
