“This … is the great reward of the Gospel: God himself. When we risk our lives to run after Christ, we discover the safety that is found only in his sovereignty, the security that is only found in his love, and the satisfaction that is found only in his presence. This is the eternally great reward, and we would be foolish to settle for anything less.
Radical obedience to Christ is not easy; it is dangerous… It’s not comfort, not health, not wealth and not prosperity in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us.”
