We’re coming up on Holy Week. On Good Friday the seed will fall to the ground and die. Be sure you die with it. In fact, you can bury your old broken life in the ground right now. Challenge God to see how much fruit he can make it bear. Challenge God to draw you to himself. Understand that for your old lives to end, Christ’s human life had to come to an end. He had to be lifted up. He is the seed that dies, and in dying bears much fruit.
Our old lives are coming to an end.
Readings from Jer. 31:31-34; Heb. 5:5-10; John 12:20-33. Preached by the Reverend J. W. Dell on March 18, 2018 at Holy Trinity Church Inwood.
Transcript available here.
Join us each Sunday morning for worship at 10:30, followed by coffee and a discussion of the week’s message.
