Death equals life

Standard

John 12:24 Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.

This point is without argument – There is no other way to fruitfulness.  We cannot maximize our potential unless we die to ourselves – our own agenda, our own self-oriented lifestyles.  No-one enjoys the times of downward mobility, then being ‘buried’, then especially ‘dying!’ However, this process can be the greatest moment of our lives because only in dying to ourselves is our potential in Christ discovered.

None of us are designed to produce nothing.  All of us are designed to produce something.  But the pathway is the same as a natural seed.  We must be planted, buried & die to ourselves in that place.

Lay down your life & pick up the cross and follow Him.

See you in church!
