Reflection on Seeds and Dying

Reflection on seeds and dying

Jesus replied, “Now the time has come for the Son of Man to enter into his glory. I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives. Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity. Anyone who wants to serve me must follow me, because my servants must be where I am. And the Father will honor anyone who serves me. (John 12:23-26)

  1. I love how you set up your blog to relate, respond, and react! I think it is such a great approach to study the Word. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Hi BJ, Thanks for liking my blog http://walkingtomorrow.wordpress.com
    I like yours and like what you are trying to do with Church. I am a bit surprised you followed me as we probably have quite different views on what Church should be, although I appreciate we are both trying to grapple with that! I would welcome your comments on what I write. It is meant to be a discussion, a provocation to struggle with what the Holy Spirit might be doing/saying about how He sees His Bride in the coming years. So welcome and feel free to pitch in – I need a sounding board! 🙂

    • You said,
      “Although it applies to all men since ‘no man can come to the Father except through Me’ in saying it first to His followers it no less applies to us. It’s not just an evangelistic verse it is immensely practical theology for believers. We come to Papa through the Son. Because of His blood. Because of the cross. On our knees. Because we can.”
      I don’t see much to disagree with there.
