“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:
- The “kernel of wheat dies and produces many seeds” symbolizes Jesus dying for our sins and giving us everlasting life. We are the “many seeds.”
- We must die to our old self so we can have new and eternal life through Christ Jesus.
- Wheat produces it’s own kind – we are made in His image and we are growing daily striving to become more like Jesus.
