Devotional 4/17

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. John‬ ‭12:24‬

You can only multiply who you are.

Your life is a seed. A seed is beaten and then it sprouts, and multiplies. It’s so exciting to understand what Jesus was saying here: I need to die so that you all can love abundantly. I died so you can live. I was beaten so you could be healed. I resurrected so that you can sprout, and multiply!

We’ve acknowledged that God has an appointed time for everything under the sun, including significant events in our lives. It is of great importance to be synchronized with God’s will. The Bible says that it is the Lord’s will for all to be saved. Jesus said that His entire life’s purpose was dedicated to destroying the works of the devil. He lived to fulfill the work God had given Him to do. When He hung on the cross, He said: it is finished. In other words our Savior said, Lord I completed the work you sent me to do.

Every seed has the potential for abundance, prosperity, and multiplication. But it cannot bear fruit and multiply except it is buried, crushed and broken. In the same way THE SEED (Jesus Christ) died to give us life: we too must die, to give others life.

God has given you work to do. Your lifestyle draws people to Christ. Your prayers for others do make a difference. Your seed matters.

Let’s pray:

Lord Jesus, thank you for resurrection power and newness of life. May we die to ourselves! Show us where we still have an egocentric mentality or expectation, and help us lay it at your feet. In the name of Jesus, do I pray. Amen.
