"...now in this time..."

Notice this passage from Mark 10:28-30:

28Peter began to say to him, "See, we have left everything and followed you." 29Jesus said, "Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, 30who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.

It appears that the Christian life is not just about what we get after we die, but about the family...the faith family we have now in this time...ever consider the church an intregal part of Jesus' mission for your life?
