“It Will Be Worth it All”

The disciples hear many teachings for Jesus. After a particularly tough question, the disciples question Jesus.

Please read the following scripture passage. Mark 10:17-31

17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good — except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.'” 20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.” 21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad because he had great wealth. 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” 27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man, this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” 28 Peter said to him, “We have left everything to follow you!” 29 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields — and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life. 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

Basically, the disciples are asking, will it be worth following Jesus? Do the positives of following outweigh the negatives. Jesus says it will be worth it all.

A songwriter wrote a song using the following lyrics. Please sing along and rest assured, it will be worth it all.

“It Will Be Worth It All”

Sometimes the day seems long,

Our trials hard to bear.

We´re tempted to complain,

to murmur and despair.

But Christ will soon appear

to catch his bride away!A

ll tears forever over

in God’s eternal day!

CHORUS:

It will be worth it all

when we see Jesus!

Life’s trials will seem so small

when we see Christ.

One glimpse of His dear face,

all sorrow will erase.

So, bravely run the race

till we see Christ.

At times the sky seems dark,

with not a ray of light;

We’re tossed and driven on,

no human help in sight.

But there is One in heaven,

Who knows our deepest care;

Let Jesus solve your problems

,just go to him in prayer.

CHORUS:

It will be worth it all

when we see Jesus!

Life’s trials will seem so small

when we see Christ.

One glimpse of His dear face,

all sorrow will erase.

So, bravely run the race

till we see Christ.

Life’s day will soon be o’re,

all storms forever past;

We’ll cross the great divide

to Glory, safe at last!

We’ll share the joys of heaven:

a harp, a home, a crown;

The tempter will be banished,

We’ll lay our burdens down.

CHORUS:

It will be worth it all

when we see Jesus!

Life’s trials will seem so small

when we see Christ.

One glimpse of His dear face,

all sorrow will erase.

So, bravely run the race

till we see Christ.

Have a tremendous day in the Lord,

Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.

Be Blessed,

Be a Blessing;

Amen
