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. John 12:24
I can’t say I jump for joy when I think of dying to live. I want to produce a harvest and spread the seeds of truth to others allowing for hope and grace to be sown along the way.
This verse however lets me know that in order to do what I want, to be fruitful and multiply I need to die. That sounds less than enduring.
I was reminded today as I listened to an old gospel group singing in the park. How this same ministry is the one the Lord used 20 years ago to reach me and break down my outer shell.
My sister shared with them that they had touched her as well. I think the time she was touched was about four years ago. Either way they have been used by God to feed his sheep and to let the gospel be known.
I was able to spend some time with my in-laws today and my sister with some of her friends and see the gospel group in the park. It was a fun filled day. I’m a little tired, but that is ok.
My Pearl today is the ability to get up and walk and move in order to enjoy God’s creation.
