Some people who follow Jesus have a future focus, greatly anticipating heaven. They endure the present while waiting for what is next.
Other people who follow Jesus have a present perspective, living boldly for today as his ambassadors to the world. The afterlife is almost an afterthought.
Which is it? Is our reward for following Jesus, now or later?
The answer is “Yes!”
Jesus said that his followers will receive a reward in the present and even more in the future; he promises us something for today and something for tomorrow.
The Bible says that what we give up for Jesus now, he will replace multiple times in our present life, with eternal life as a bonus later. When we follow Jesus, we get the best of both.
