“But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.” Mark 10:30Text — Mark 10:28-30
Compensation refers to monetary payment or other rewards given to an individual in exchange for their services. In the 1 workplace, compensation is what is earned by employees. It includes salary or wages and other bonuses. In the world today, everyone wants to be compensated for their labour at work. Jesus had told His disciples the huge sacrifices that go with following Him and getting to heaven. Peter, who remembered that he and his brother Andrew left their home and fishing business to follow Jesus, wanted to know if they will be compensated. Jesus reassured Peter and other people that will follow Him of the manifold blessings here on earth and the privilege of heaven at last.
To give your life to Jesus and follow Him demands that you sacrifice worldly pleasures, positions and selfish pursuits; while you commit your time, talents and treasure to God’s service. In the game of soccer, when players are on the football field; they will sweat, labour and get bruises, but they look away from the pain and focus on the victory and the reward that follows. Usually, the football team coach is always on the side of the field to cheer and inspire his players. Likewise, our Great Master and Lord Jesus Christ, is with us always. He has promised to compensate us in this world with great blessings and equally take us to heaven at last.
1 Corinthians 15:57,58
