32. Blessed to follow.

"Come, follow me and I will make you fishers of men." (Matthew 5:19) Those whom Jesus called to ministry had to leave behind their means of livelihood to literally follow him. However, there were many others who followed Jesus, hoping to get something but he turned to them and spoke about giving up everything! "Any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple."(Luke 14:33) Peter once remarked, "We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?" (Matthew 19:27) Jesus assured that their sacrifice wouldn't go unrewarded. "No one who has left home or children or fields for me and the Gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age and in the age to come, eternal life!"(Mark 10:29-30) The Gospel holds promises both for this life and the coming life but we must be willing to sacrifice something for Jesus. Even a cup of water given in his name will never go unrewarded! (Mark 9:41) That might sound like the most silliest statement but it reveals the extent of God's faithfulness! 'Therefore ... give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.'( 1 Corinthians 15:58) Amen
