Bible Text: "But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then." (Mark 10:31)

There will be universal honour for all who sacrifice for Jesus’ sake. Whatever has been given up for Him will be returned to us a many times over, in addition to eternal life. This is the qualifying remark regarding the apostle’s reward.

All who sacrifice for the Lord will be rewarded, but God’s way and timing of rewarding may not match up with man’s way and timing of being rewarded. When God rewards expect the unexpected, always remember God don’t look at things the way man does.

We sometimes don’t think enough about the courage of Jesus. It took a tremendous amount of plain bravery for him to walk straight towards His fate at Calvary, and to walk in front of the disciples “Jesus was walking ahead of them. The disciples were filled with awe, and the people following behind were overwhelmed with fear” Mark 10:32-34.

The courage of Jesus is especially amazing in light of our frequent awe as Christians, afraid to “stand out” for Jesus. He wasn’t afraid to “stand out” for us.

So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
