24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives. John 12:24
Jesus claimed that his death would be the beginning and not the end of his work on earth. He predicted that his sacrifice would set off a chain reaction that would result in a great harvest of new lives!
The big question is: “What kind of lives was Jesus talking about?” What if I’m “broken” and “screwed up”? What if I’m a mess? Isn’t following Jesus just for “good people”? Can Jesus’ plan include someone like me? Can someone really CHANGE? How does it “work”?
Sunday we’ll answer all of these questions from the teachings of Jesus. Thru-me will bring the rock. …and oh yeah, Sunday I will be giving my 4 reasons why I think religion is like a Chia Pet. :-)
