It says, ““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 inherit eternal life.” ”
Jesus is speaking to his disciples about the dangers of hanging on to money, wealth, & possessions more than hanging on to God. It’s easy to say that we’ll give up everything for God but it’s so much harder to actually carry out. It’s hard to let go of every earthly thing to gain all that Christ has to offer. To put it simply, Christ has given us the greatest gift: life; but more importantly eternal life in greatness. But because we love what we can see and grasp, it’s hard to drop the very things that are holding us back from grabbing all of Jesus here on earth. So I started thinking & I asked God to show me that His son dying for me was more than enough. And I wrote out this prayer:
Father God, show me that your son Jesus Christ dying for me on the cross is more than enough; that even if you don’t bless me with another thing, that I would be overjoyed because I have you & because I have a relationship with you, Jesus. – In Jesus’ name, amen.
So my prayer is that we would all learn to ‘Let God be enough’ no matter the circumstance . . .
