Introduction: One morning Marion Gilbert opened the door to get the newspaper and was surprised to see a strange little dog with her paper in his mouth. Delighted with this unexpected “delivery service,” She fed him some treats. The following morning she was horrified to see the same dog sitting in front of the door, wagging his tail, surrounded by eight newspapers. She spent the rest of that morning returning the papers to their owners. Marion Gilbert, Reader’s Digest, February, 1994, p. 12. Like that little dog, we all enjoy rewards!
Transition: Our text today deals with eternal rewards. As we study Peter’s Question, Jesus’ Answer, and Jesus’ Explanation, we will find principles, which ought to comfort and encourage our souls.
