More Productive in Death
More Productive in Death
Listen to these words that Jesus spoke explaining why HE must die. Relate this to your own life. Do you need to die to anything?
“The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it will remain a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. If anyone loves his life he will lose it. While if anyone hates his life in this world he will keep it in eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me and were I am there my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” John 12:23-26
Think about this: you are more productive in death. This is a great lesson to learn. When you die to self (old nature) you become more productive. You are more effective and fruitful when your old nature is dead and gone and the new nature (Spirit of God) is alive. You are an unproductive single seed until you die to the old nature. True production and true fulfillment comes when we are alive in Christ Jesus and take our proper position in the Kingdom of God sitting at the right hand of father God. You are an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus Christ. You are a child of the King of Kings. You are HIS beloved son or daughter. HE has given you authority to rule and have power over the forces of evil. HE is your Lord and HE loves you with an everlasting love. HE knew you from the beginning of time. You have stepped down as king (old nature) and HE has become KING through the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit living in you.
When you die to your rights, your ownership, your title, your position, your pride, your desires, your cravings and your boasting, you are able to better hear the Holy Spirit’s voice. God wants your life to produce many seeds. HE is the God of abundance and production.
Satan’s biggest trick is to keep God’s children focused on the dead seed. Satan wants you to keep digging up the dead seed. Satan wants you to rehearse all the reasons why the seed died. He wants you to focus on your old sinful nature (the dead seed) versus your new identity in Christ Jesus.
You have a totally new identity from the old body which is dead because of sin. In God’s sight you are dead to sin but alive in Christ Jesus. This new nature and identity is supercharged with the power of the Holy Spirit for living beyond the circumstances of life. Your production will increase. You will not live in fear and defeat. You will live in victory and power over the enemy’s deceit. Live today in the power and position as a King’s Kid. You are a dearly loved child of God. Stop digging up the dead seed and accept your position of royalty in the family of God.
