The actions that Christians take toward others that are in obedience to God's command for them to love their neighbors as themselves (especially with regard to bringing them to saving faith in Christ) -- and even (or especially) when involving personal sacrifice on the part of those Christians -- will be compensated to them in far, far greater measure -- if not in this temporal life and world, then in eternity to an extent and duration that will never pass away or end. Conversely, those who are less generous in that regard will find their corresponding eternal reward to be smaller in proportion to the reduced degree of their own service and sacrifice.
