The Time Is Now

Who was this guy Jesus? Who was this one who brought a dead man back to life? People wanted to see him, but did they understand? Were they willing to follow where he lead? He tried to tell them...

“Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over. In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life. But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you’ll have it forever, real and eternal.

 “If any of you wants to serve me, then follow me. Then you’ll be where I am, ready to serve at a moment’s notice. The Father will honor and reward anyone who serves me.  [Eugene Peterson's "The Message"]

His words are for us as well. Like the seed, things in us must die for us to fully live. Our purpose is to follow him, letting go and reckless in our love. And the time is now.
