The teachings and healings of Jesus Christ.
Scripture Mathew 19, vs 25.
When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed saying, who then can be saved.
Inorderwards, when his disciples heard of the teachings and explanation of Jesus Christ, as to who can enter the kingdom of heaven, and then he gave instance of the rich man, and then still speaking in parable that it would be difficult for a Carmel to pass through the eyes of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven, all of these teachings made the disciples amazed, and then they asked a question, who then can be saved?
Vs 26, but Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, with men it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
27, then answered peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
It’s amazing seeing Jesus disciples ask this question, can anyone imagine what they asked, you all remember the general I talked about, with so great faith, who never followed Jesus everywhere that he went, he would never ask such question, now here we have the disciples that followed Jesus everywhere asking what they would have for following Jesus Christ.
Well, then Jesus said unto them, verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me in the regeneration, when the son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve stones judging the twelve tribes of Isreal.
This was how Jesus answered them, but they should have exercise their faith to know better, to know the enoumous gain they would have then and later for being with Jesus, and then they asked just as normal people that just heard about him.
Sometimes, we are prompt to do the things that we just want to do, and then Maybe we don’t know why we are doing them, and still we keep at it, not knowing if it could be of positive to our lives or not, but within us, we feel we are doing the right thing, the right thing that could help us, and then still help others, and shouldn’t we keep at those things.
Well, maybe the disciples were not quite sure of what they stand to gain, for following Jesus, and then they asked just to be sure that they are on the right track.
Faith is seeing with the eyes of the spirit, with faith you know what you stand to achieve in whatever it is, and you don’t need anyone to tell you. So it’s important that we have faith not just faith but great faith just like the General that I talked about, for this is what can help us or make us accomplish in life.
