SEED OF ETERNAL LIFE

John 12:24-25 (MSG)
24 "Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over. 25 In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life. But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you'll have it forever, real and eternal.


Seven farmers were given 3 bags of seed each. Five of them were wise; they decided to plant most of their seeds and endure with the little left for food. Two out of the seven did not sow their seeds. They couldn’t let go; they ate most of their seeds that year. The next year, the two farmers who wouldn’t let go were hungry and starving while the five farmers who sowed their seeds had a bountiful harvest and entered enduring abundance. Unfortunately, the few seeds the two farmers had left could no longer grow when planted.

This life we have now is the seed for our eternal life. We sow this seed and give it up by giving our lives to Christ and ceasing to live for ourselves anymore. This means we now live for Christ and for His purpose. We present ourselves and all that we are to the Lord. Our visions and dreams are now surrendered to His will and plan.

Today’s Bible text shows us that anyone who holds on to this present life will lose it at the end, but anyone who lets it go by giving it to the Lord will gain eternal life.

Go into today examining yourself. Are you living for Christ or are you still holding on to this temporary life and living for yourself?

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you live solely for the purpose of Christ and the kingdom.
