"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain." - John 12 V24

"For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death is working in us, but life in you." - 2 Corinthians 4 V11, 12

The grain of wheat has to fall to the ground and die to produce much grain. Unless we die to self, take up our cross and follow Christ daily, we cannot bear much fruit. Living for Christ is not easy but demands sacrifice and selfless service. The Lord Himself goes with us through our trials and tribulations and He has promised a new incorruptible body for all who died for His sake. Life may be tough to live for Christ, but it is beautiful and nothing compares to the awaiting glory. A little while longer and we shall live with our Lord forever. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
