Live For More

‘Unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone.’ John 12:24 NLT

Jesus said, ‘Unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels.’ Someone has estimated that one kernel of wheat will produce a stalk bearing three heads of wheat. In each head there are 15 to 35 kernels, altogether producing close to 100 kernels from a stalk. After they are planted, these kernels will produce ten thousand kernels. When those are replanted, they will produce a million kernels. And if you keep going, you will cover the whole earth with wheat! It’s amazing what one person can do when they commit their life to Christ and start where they are.

DL Moody once said, ‘The world has yet to see what God can do through a man who is yielded to Him.’ He decided to be that person and ended up impacting the world for Christ.

When Peter, James, and John met Jesus, their goal in life was to make a living. Then Jesus invited them to follow Him and make a difference. And today He’s inviting you to do the same thing. He’s inviting you to find a need that no one is meeting and give yourself to it. He’s asking you to find a cause greater than self-interest, namely His cause, and pour your life into it.

When Jesus asked the disciples to leave their jobs and their security, He was turning their world upside down. But when they said yes to Him, they became so successful that their enemies accused them of ‘turning the world upside down’ (see Acts 17:6).
