27 Then Peter answered and said to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You. Therefore what shall we have?” (NKJV)
Peter saw contrast between wealthy& poor
Jesus gave them a marvelous promise of rewards in this life & in the next
Anything forsaken would be returned a hundredfold
Essentially an investment instead of sacrifices not all dividends would be received in life.
Is possible to do God’s will but have a wrong heart
Serving for benefits only misses the purpose of serving. We miss His best blessing for us.
“Trust Him unreservedly & believe that He will always give what is best.”
