The crucified life

23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Very truly I tell you, 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. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. -John 12:23-26

Many have heard about the great men of God who did mighty things for the Lord. As you are reading now you may have a deep hunger within you to do something great for the Lord and sometimes you are discouraged because you have tried all that you can but nothing great happening. You may even say i pray a lot, I fast more and do other things to build my Spiritual life but nothing is really happening.

The truth is that the work is not yours it belongs to God. The Bible says “…Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.”  Zechariah 4:6  It means it’s only the by the Holy Spirit that a man can accomplish something for God.

In John Chapter 12: 23-26 Jesus Christ explain how we can be a mighty tool and great vessel in God’s hand. It’s only by dying to the flesh. In verse 24 of the Capture 12 of  the book of John Jesus said “Very truly I tell you, 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. and he went on saying “ 26 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”

He means if you and I really want to be  servant of his and do mighty things we must first lay our lives down, as in carrying our cross. “Carrying your cross means when your will and God’s will crosses and you drop your will to submit to his will”

Lay your thoughts, your plans ,your ambitions and your will at his feet and trust his will for your life. And this submission should be daily the more you die to Self the more Alive you become. And that’s when this will work for you “Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.”
