KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 12:24 KJV 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.

In John 12:23, the Lord talked about the fact that it is time for Him to be glorified. The Lord then added that unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it abides alone, but if it dies, it would bring forth much fruit. It is the bringing forth much fruit, that the glory is manifested. John 15:8 KJV “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so, shall ye be my disciples.”

Natural experience teaches us that, a seed can only grow and become fruit when it is planned. The Lord calls the process of planting and growth as a dying process. To have a meaningful life, one has to die to himself. The whole idea, is to place the will of Jesus first. The Lord Jesus in a few days’ time was going to be crucified, and shamefully portrayed to all men. He knew that, through this death He would be resurrected and out of that many people would receive life.

The act of planting a seed is a form of sacrifice. Sacrifice remains the only means of multiplication in the kingdom of God. Every act of sincere sacrifice would always bring a multiplication of what was sacrificed. To sacrifice is to willingly give out something dear, precious or costly to you. In this case, you sacrifice your very interest to accept that of the Lord Jesus. There is no glory without sacrifice


I thank you dear Lord for your goodness unto me. I surrender my will in total subjection to you. I refuse to live to please myself but to daily take up my cross and follow you.



Phi 1:21 KJV For to me to live Is Christ, and to die is gain.

Act 15:26 KJV “Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
