February 20 - Devotion
Peter wanted to know his stake with Jesus Christ since he has compromised many things for the sake of pleasing him. Jesus responded to Peter’s request and said,
“Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life” (Luke 18:29-30).
Jesus is a skilled “Business Man,” and he knows the best way to reward his faithful servants. Anyone who invests in Jesus’ business will not regret it. The fellow will never be bankrupt! It is a “Win-Win” situation to serve Jesus Christ; the adventure is worthwhile, and it has both earthly and heavenly profits. Jesus will prosper his faithful servants on earth and he will take them to heaven also!
Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that yours is a rewarding business, and I want to be involved in it. I am determined to commit myself to your business by confessing you as my personal Lord and Savior, and by faithfully serving you throughout the days of my life. In fact, I am acting on my determination right now: I (Mention Your Name), confess you, Jesus Christ, as my personal Lord and Savior, and repent from my sins. I give you my heart, and I will serve you throughout the days of my life. Amen.
