Ashes to Fire: A Single Seed

John 12:20-33

Have you ever imagined how a tiny acorn has the potential of growing into a tree the size of a house?  This is potential God has created but it is only unleashed as the seed is planted and dies.  The even more amazing by-product is that as the seed is transformed into the tree it forms hundreds and thousands of more seeds each with the potential for life! Jesus makes the same parallel in our scripture passage, and invites us to the same fate.  Die to self and truly live.  And not just live but be a source by which God can bring life to others.  What a life!
