A SEED HAS TO DIE BEFORE IT LIVES
1 Corinthians 15:36 - “...What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.”
Caterpillar in similar fashion goes into the dark of the cocoon...there’s a time period in the dark before it emerges in the new life it was created for.
A seed is unrecognizable as a seed...it’s now a plant.
- You should be unrecognizable as a new believer in Christ.
If we think we’ve been buried to die instead of buried to grow, we will try to get out of the soil and circumvent the process. - You have to see the soil as a garden not a grave.
