Mark 10, 28-31

Peter took this up. ‘Look,’ he said to Jesus, ‘we have left everything and followed you.’ Jesus said, ‘In truth I tell you, there is no one who has left house, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children or land for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive a hundred times as much, houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and land and persecutions too, now in this present time and, in the world to come, eternal life. Many who are first will be last, and the last, first.’
