To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 19.16–30 on January 28, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

Peter said to the Lord that he and his fellow-disciples had left everything to follow Jesus. He then assured them that by doing so, they had gained much more,

“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life” (Matthew 19.29). 

Follow Jesus and see how it enriches your life, even if you lose everything, because He is your everything, and He will see to it that you have whatever you need.

Questions:

  • Are you following Jesus with 100% of your heart?
  • If not, what part of yourself or your life are you holding back, and why?
