Leaving Your Homes for Christ's Sake

Scripture Passage: Matthew 19:27-30

A cat likes to stay inside the house and not leave it. But we Christians sometimes have to leave our homes for the sake of the gospel.  Peter asked Jesus what reward the disciples would have because they had left everything to follow Him. Jesus answered that, because they have left their homes and families to follow Him, they will be rewarded in Heaven. It is encouraging for those who are serving God far from home that they too will be rewarded one day, so we must not give up.

1. What did Jesus promise His disciples?
Jesus promised them a reward in Heaven.
2. What further promises did Jesus make to Christians who make sacrifices for Him?
Everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields will receive one hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.
3. How are spiritual values different from worldly values?
Jesus said "But many who are first will be last and many who are last will be first."

Memory verse: Matthew 19:29
And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will have eternal life. (NLT)
