JOHN 12:24 NLT | “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.”
Jesus on the Cross said it is finished before giving up His spirit. It signified the breaking of His body which was complete. He could now draw all men to Himself after being planted in the tomb and raised from dead by the power of the Holy Spirit, as this act gave us the opportunity to be called Sons of God.
It’s either we willingly surrender our lives to be broken as His Consecrated Ones so we can bear much fruit just like Jesus who willingly gave up His spirit or it gets broken by force resulting in more pain and friction. Many have chosen the latter and have indirectly and unknowingly displeased God.
I have personally decided to always seek the help of the Holy Spirit in following the narrow path of joyfully laying down my life for His praise and glory. What about you?
