Luke 18:28 ” Peter said to Him, ‘We have left all we had to follow You!’ “

From the moment Jesus beckoned that rag-tag group of fishermen with, “Come, follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”… there has been the decision of whether we follow Jesus or not.  For many, it’s a sacrificial decision…knowing that they are at risk of losing everything.  Following Jesus sacrificially means accepting the potential loss of family, employment, and even freedom.  But Jesus assured the disciples, and all of us,  that this sacrifice isn’t without great reward…for in Luke 18: 29-30  He goes on to promise them, “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said to them, “no one who has left home or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the Kingdom of God will fail to receive many times as much in this age and, in the age to come, eternal life.”
