Matthew 19, 27-29:
“Everyone who has left houses, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children or land, for the sake of my name will be repaid a hundred times over and also inherit eternal life.”
Jesus always invites us to follow him, but never compels us.
To follow him has to be a very free act on our part.
Jesus only invites and promises.
His promise is to receive a hundred times more what has been left behind to follow him.
Whoever opts for Jesus and his Gospel will never be disappointed.
But we cling to our small interests and we lose the great treasure that is given to us in Jesus.
May Jesus always be for you the first thing.
Never think about what you lose but in what you gain when you choose him.
Ask him to help you put behind him everything in your life that is before him.
