Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life.
The thing about the gospel that makes people hesitate about embracing it is the question about what they have to give up. We naturally want to live our lives as we would. We don’t want to conform to the word of God. The scripture above says it and I’m here to tell you, whatever we have to give up for God is replaced by so MUCH more. With God is abundant, everlasting life. What could be better than that? What is God asking you to let go of? Don’t fear! He wants to bless you with so much more. Amen
