Death To The Seed

John 12:24

For sure, I tell you, unless a seed falls into the ground and dies, it will only be a seed. If it dies, it will give much grain.

People, the seed NEEDS to die. There’s no way around it. Will we miss it? Not even a bit! Why? Well, because there is nothing in this world that belongs to us. For all things come from the Lord. We have given Him only what already belongs to Him (1 Chronicles 29:14).

Yes, EVERYTHING is His! If we have, it is because He has trusted us according to His sovereign will, therefore we should not waste it with futile things or even selfish investments. We need to be aware of this in order for us not to continue holding back what doesn’t really belong to us. There are people who die of hunger while we are satiated with what we think belongs to us.

Psalms 23:1

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

So, it if it this way and we believe in this, then how come we continue to see so many lives perishing while our “safes” are full of what they need and should be invested in them?

1 John 3:17

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?
