The life of Jesus. Read Today:  First shall be last discourse; Matthew 20:1-16

Matthew 20:16 (Bible in Worldwide English)
16 ‘In the same way, people who are last will be first, and those who are first will be last.’

When I get to heaven, as when a lot of people get to heaven, I think they are going to be surprised to find who is there.  God will give us all the same reward, eternal life in the presence of Jesus and Himself as well as the Holy Spirit.  There will be no surprises there.  What will be a surprise is who will be there with us.  I do not know how many death bed conversions there are, and people who I thought would never make it into heaven may just very will make it in.  All it takes is faith in Jesus as a savior.  God chooses to pay us all, like the vineyard laborers, the same pay, life eternal with Him.

Read for next time: Jesus predicts death on road to Jerusalem; Matthew 20:17-19; Mark 10:32-34; Luke 18:31-34
