In our Journey, the end is coming….sometimes far faster than we can think…death! Jesus says we can yield a great harvest if we, like a grain of wheat, die to ourselves and planted in the ground…yield “a great harvest.” John 12:23-26
I like to be in control of my life. I like to make my own decisions. I like to decide how to spend my money. But many times in controlling my life, I make bad decisions, wrong assessments, or burden myself with more work than was needed. Sometimes I try fixing something and I should have just called for help from someone who knew what they were doing.
A few years ago, I had left for many months, and came back to a few potatoes in a bag which were smelly and useless. I decided to cut them up and plant them. For each planted piece, I got several smaller potatoes (end of the fall). Dying to “themselves” they yielded “a great harvest.”
On my Journey, I am giving myself over to Jesus, dying to self, and living to Him and for Him. It is not easy to do, but each time I do, I find my life more fulfilled. Results are much better!
