  1. You Can't Outgive God

    Mark 10:28-30
    28...Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!"

    29"I tell you the truth," Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel
    30will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life.

    Jesus is basically promising three things in this Scripture. First, he
    is saying that the disciples -- and we who follow Jesus today -- can't out give God.

    God will bless them and us far more than we could ever
    give up for him.

    Second, that doesn't mean that followers of Jesus will
    have easy lives on this side of eternity -- there will be persecutions.

    Finally, he promises eternal life. In other words, their sacrifices for
    their faith will be far overshadowed by the blessings they will receive
    from their Father in heaven.
