A Kernel of Wheat

"I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed.  But if it dies, it produces many seeds."  John 12:24

Death is essential for further life.  This verse symbolizes 3 things:
  1. The "kernel of wheat dies and produces many seeds" symbolizing Jesus dying for our sins and giving us everlasting life.  We are the "many seeds." 
  2. We must die to our old self so we can have new and eternal life through Christ Jesus.
  3. Wheat produces it's own kind - we are made in God's image and we are growing daily striving to become more like Jesus.
We are all part of God's growing garden.

Thank you Almighty Father.
