Dying to Live

By Dr. T. M. Moore - Posted at The Fellowship of Ailbe:

If we would truly live, we must surely die.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.”
- John 12.24
Consider the infinite, multiple power of the seed – how many grasses, fruits, and animals are contained in each kind of seed; and how there surges forth from each a beautiful, innumerable multiplicity of forms.
- Eriugena, Homily on John 1.1-14, Irish, 9th century[1]

What a strange paradox, that, in a certain sense, a seed must first die in order to live.

The same is true for every follower of Christ. If you would live for Christ, you must die to self and the world. Dying daily is just the normal way to a full, abundant, and fruitful life in the Kingdom of God.
