Peter began to say to Jesus…
If we have given up everything and followed Jesus then let us gird up the loins of our minds, live soberly, and set our hopes completely on the grace to be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Indeed, He who called us is holy. Therefore, may we be holy in every aspect of our conduct, for it is written, BE HOLY BECAUSE I AM HOLY.Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age…MANY THAT ARE FIRST WILL BE LAST, AND THE LAST WILL BE FIRST.
