Luke 18:28-30 “Peter said to Him, ‘We have left all we had to follow You!’ ‘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.’ “

Just as Jesus said to each of the disciples, He says to you today…”Follow Me.” But for many, following Jesus will become a very lonely road. Family members may become hostile and critical of your new found faith…friends may find your new life-style too stuffy and stifling to want to be around you anymore. In these verses Jesus acknowledges the sacrifices the disciples had to make…and that following Him was not an easy journey. But for all the sacrifice and self-denial…for all the loneliness and pain… Jesus promised abundant blessings both now and forever.
