Unfair Deal. For Real.

Luke 18.28-30
Peter said, "We left everything we owned and followed you, didn't we?"
"Yes," said Jesus, "and you won't regret it. No one who has sacrificed home, spouse, brothers and sisters, parents, children — whatever — will lose out. It will all come back multiplied many times over in your lifetime. And then the bonus of eternal life!"

You, yes you. You who left everything - every single bit of logic in medicine - you left everything and followed what God said! And what does Jesus say about that? Yes! And you won't regret it!! You won't regret! You will get your healing! You won't regret it! You will get your family relationships, your unbelieving loved one’s salvation, your spiritual relationships with the right people, your financial provision and stability, your reunited broken families!

How? Because of what Jesus said - no one who has sacrificed home, spouse, brothers, sisters, parents, children, comfort in thoughts, comfort in material wealth, comfort in job arrangements, prestige, sleep, whatever - no one who has given all these important things up for the more important thing, which is following God, will regret it! It will all come back with a twofold punch! First, it will come back multiplied, grown, fully matured and reproduced, abundant, many times! And second, it will happen in your lifetime! You will see it come to pass! In your lifetime!

Thank you, God!

And of course, the bonus of always being with God - always - eternal life!

I have everything, God, because I now see that I've given up what's important for the more important! I love you Lord, thank you, you will always succeed, because your truth always prevails!
