The hundredfold

(Mt. 19:29; Lk. 14:26; Mk. 10:30)

People keep looking for this hundredfold but seem to miss the point all the time.  Others place it in social analysis which is another form of delusion and deception among those who do it without the consideration of God.

This is found in the fulfillment of those who become servants of Jesus, who turn their backs to the world, not to abandon it, but to find in it the perspective of Jesus who came to save the world (Jn. 12:47).  People of this sort seemingly have left the pleasures of married life; yet when you see them, are more fulfilled and find greater joy in their spiritual children and in being servants of God’s kingdom. 

The delights of the Spirit far surpass the delights of the flesh yet, as the burning bush (Ex. 3:2), will not have the effect of physical exhaustion.  This can only be discovered by grace and by the experience of God which cannot be described in word or writing.  Just go on the journey of the Lord.  He can also give you the true meaning and experience of what is called spiritual marriage.
