Our logic of math has been wrong all this time!!
Why do we insist that if we clone ourselves that it would be considered life? When, in fact it is just the opposite.
John 12:24 says “I tell you the truth,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. “The man who loves his life will lose it,while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”With the dieing of the physical seed, it still has power in it’s deadness, and it is the life of newness to be planted again to produce.
I just finished planting my garden for the year, and not one of those seeds looked like they were “alive”. They all looked like they were lifeless in my hands before I planted them. But in the coming weeks I will have been proved wrong when there will be hints of a green plant peeking it’s head above the ground. What an awesome picture to just sit back and look at the beauty of the symbolism of life!
What really blows my mind to think that it is our understanding that we are to reproduce to become what God wants us to be? I could be sitting and watching a little seed in my hand to reproduce itself for a very long time! We have are under the impression that it is through our works that God is multiplied.
I truly believe that it is God and God alone that is in that seed that I planted, because that seed is dead. This should be us also, until we are dead inside and are filled with God in spirit that He will be reproduced.
This is truly God’s Church!
