Investing Your Life

Investing Your Life pic

“29 Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, 30 but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life” (Mark 10:29-30 NASB). Jesus is talking about how we invest ourselves into the kingdom. For many it will be a sacrifice. We all know people who have left their families and homes to invest their lives in a foreign land among foreign people. Jesus is not saying this is the way to eternal life. He is saying that at the end of the mission, there will be eternal life waiting for them. He also promises a whole new set of families and homes in the here and now. Even writers who spend a great deal of time at the computer have to often set aside family time and other events to pursue what God has called them to do. But the rewards are 100 times as great. We don’t do it for the rewards, but it’s nice God cares so much.
