REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: Matthew 19:27-30 //
27 Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?”
28 Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife[a] or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.
It is a pertinent question that Peter asked Jesus in the text today. He wanted to know the benefit of forsaking all and following Him. The answer Jesus gave shows two levels of reward, eternal life and present world rewards. If only, Christians know this truth, they will be more diligent and committed in serving God.
Prayer: Pray that you will be diligent and committed in partnering with God.
