A Single Seed

In John 12:24, Jesus declares, “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.”

A powerful reminder that death and new life are inseparably linked in the Christian faith.

Just as a seed must die in order to produce a plant, we too must be willing to let go of our old selves in order to experience new life in Christ.

As Christians, we are called to die to our own desires and put our trust in God. This means surrendering our own will and submitting to God’s plan for our lives.

It may be painful to let go of the things that we cling to, but it is necessary if we want to experience the fullness of life that God has in store for us.

Ultimately, Jesus’ words in John 12:24 remind us that death is not the end. When we die to ourselves, we can experience the new life that God has promised us.

This new life is not just a distant hope for the future, but a reality that we can experience in the here and now.

Be willing to let go of your old self and embrace the new life that God has in store for you today!
