From the Pastor’s Pen

Final Thoughts on Mark 10:31

But many who are first will be last, and the last first.              NKJV

As Christians, after Jesus returns to take us home with Him, we may be surprised at the seating arrangement at the marriage supper of the Lamb.  Most Christians will have never preached or sang before a large congregation, had a book published, or achieved public fame.

Some who are considered insignificant may well sit nearest the throne of Jesus, such as those who often enter into their prayer closet as opposed to those who pray for public effect and display (Matt. 6:5-6).  It will likely be those who give from need rather than those who give from abundance ((Luke 21:3).  It will probably be those who have led their immediate family members to saving faith in Christ instead of those who have pushed their public ministries at the cost of their own immediate family members’ souls (I Pet. 3:20).  Those seated nearest Jesus could be the mentally and physically handicapped who love the Lord with all their hearts and are often not taken seriously when they try to express their faith (Luke 14:21-24).
