Following Jesus comes with a cost. But that cost is far outweighed by the spiritual benefits we will experience on earth and God's gift of eternal life. Verses 29 and 30 conveyed this clearly. "Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life."
