First And Last

Updated on September 22, 2009

First In The Kingdom

Matthew 19:29; Matthew 19:30


And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother[a] or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.

We have to give up whatever is hindering our faith in God. We have to leave who we love to take up our cross, because Jesus said we would receive a hundred times as much and wil inherit eternal lie.

I believe some of these verses are say the lowly on earth, the homeless and more would be the first to enter the gates then last ...

Mark 8:34


Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

I believe as Jesus called his twelve they to seemed worried, worried about there families and more. They had to give up everything for following Jesus..

What would you do?

      So true Betty, when I first gave my life to Him it was a battle to part with things of the world. Still is at times especially the want for the latest toys...smiles...but through the process when I shop I think of how many children that money could sponsor or the need just around the corner. Its getting easier and for each and every gift that one gives, He simply multiples it over and over.

      Blessings

      Thank you Betty. Throughout the ages, this challenging passage and searching question has called many to follow Christ and the way of the cross. Leaving behind or letting go that which gives us a sense of security or significance apart from Christ is an initial step toward our obedience in and dependence upon him. This is the crossroad decision every believer would have to make to become Jesus' disciple.

      This is a very difficult concept for someone outside of faith in Christ. The realization is: When we come to Jesus, He delivers us from our burden, His yoke is easy and His burden is light. We drop our burden at the foot of His cross. I agree with the scriptures quoted above, but also know they can be misinterpreted easily. The only thing we need to 'do' to come to Christ is to simply come.

      Thanks for bringing the scriptures to hub pages. God bless you.

      Jesusmyjoy,

      This is very true! You are so right! "We have to give up whatever is hindering our Faith." When you really think about it; when you have Jesus you really have All you need!

      He has promised to supply all our needs...

      Blessings
