With our jobs, we often work hard for a reward; for increased opportunity or increased pay or increased benefits. We want benefits to accompany our hard work and a job well done.
God is not unlike that! Because he knows to become a disciple, to become a follower, that you must pay a price, he offers a reward. He doesn’t cancel the prize, but he incentivizes the prize with a reward.
In this final message of our Not a Fan series, we look at Peter in Mark chapter 10, who tells Jesus ‘We have left everything to follow you’ and we answer the following questions:
- What’s in it for us?
- What’s the payoff?
- Is following Jesus worth it?
