The Miracle of Multiplication – John 12:23-26

I was blessed to hear this message in person last Sunday and thought I would share it.

23And Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.

John 12;23-26

What a counter to what we humans, at least this one, think. We often think more is better, greatness comes without sacrifice – like you are lucky, like the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.

The Bible tells otherwise. When I am weak, God is strongest in me. Less is often more. Go figure!
