As Jesus lies in the tomb, that grain of wheat fallen to the ground in order that He may bear much fruit, we are forced to ponder our own faith journey. Can we follow Him fully into a resurrection to everlasting life that comes only through separating ourselves from this world?

John 12:20-26

 

“The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.

Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be.

The Father will honor whoever serves me.

 

Let's Pray: Lord, help me to recognize the strength in weakness, the glory in humility, the life in dying to self so that I might become more like You every day. Jesus, remember me when you come into Your kingdom.
