KEY SCRIPTURE: John 12:24-25 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal”.
Our Lord Jesus taught many principles for living. Our key scripture is a major principle for successful living.
It is a principle for a fulfilled life and true self-preservation. In John 12:24 the Lord makes a statement of emphasis, “truly truly or verily verily” implying it is an established fact and the only way to have a fulfilled life through multiplication of one’s self.
He said “except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone”. There is no multiplication without sacrifice. There can be no any form of higher yields if there is no selfless commitments.
Many people dream of a better future and fulfillment in life, yet they will not make any commitments. Great footballers who attract the admiration of all persons are made, by paying very costly prices. They have personal training and exercises when the rest of the team are resting. They go the extra mile when their colleagues only made one mile. They discomfort themselves today to.be comforted tomorrow. Great leaders like our Lord JESUS Christ, Apostle Paul and many more achieved so much because they did not live for themselves but sacrificed their lives for the sake of many. Apostle Paul said in. 1 Corinthians 9:19 “for though I be free from all men, yet have I made my self-servant unto all, that I might gain them all”.
My father Opanin Kofi Somuah of blessed memory once said to me, “If you would want your enterprise to grow and become large, then you must not be a boss over the establishment but a servant to it “. Everything and everybody appreciates service, and no one likes to be dominated. Anything dominated will soon leave you or find a way of escape, yet that which is served will stay and enjoy the service. The Lord said it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35). Giving is sacrificing, giving is planting and giving always allows the miracle power in the seed to multiply. There is a power to multiply in every seed, it is called the embryo in biology. It cannot release its potential until the outer casing dies through planting.
I believe in the law of multiplication which is through sacrifice. I offer my life unto the Lord and allow it to grow and become a blessing unto many.
Acts 20:35 ” I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive”.
Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remaineth, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease”.
Prayer point; In the name of JESUS I break my self free from every fear to sacrifice my life and all that I have for the course Christ.
