One Life to Give
I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives. (John 12:24 NLT)
When He said these words, not only was Jesus referring to His own life being laid down, in order for many to be raised to new life; He also revealed a principle that applies to my life today.
If I will lay down my life for Jesus and for others, the result will be a life with multiplied effectiveness and impact.
I have one life. Will I live it for myself, and use it up? Or will I invest it into others, and watch it multiply?
Father, help me to see beyond myself to invest into others.
