Then Peter began to say to him, See, we have left all, and have followed you.…
1. That he does not need man's work in the sense that He must pay wages for it. There is no comparison between what is given; an hundredfold will be returned.
2. That Christian work must be done in the spirit of devotion, not of calculation. Many of the first may work in a wrong spirit, and become last.
3. The reward may not come in this life; the work is spiritual, as are the wages.
(T. M. Lindsay, D. D.)
