Good Seed

Fall to the ground

by Equippers Church

"Let me make this clear: A single grain of wheat will never be more than a single grain of wheat unless it drops into the ground and dies (myta). Because then it sprouts and produces (mytya) a great harvest of wheat—all because one grain died"

Jesus gives us an amazing seed here. A seed that was perhaps known in part, and yet was completely without a frame of reference.

Resurrection. What? I mean sure, it's true for plants but people don't come back to life...

We see in time that the seed is indeed his own life.

The Aramaic that Jesus uses contains an interesting wordplay with “it dies” (myta) and “it produces” (mytya). 

 

When we view death, we often see an end. Final. Done. Over. Dead end.

When Jesus saw death, he saw no dead ends.

He saw new life.

He saw production.

He saw regeneration.  

He saw all things being made new. 

 

In Him, we can also see that there are no dead ends.

We can see new life.

We can see production.

We can see regeneration.

We can see all things being made new.

 

Can you see it?
