Genesis 1:11-13; John 12:23-24
After the lesson of day one, Genesis 1 continues to teach us about life through death. Day two of creation clears a space for the land by driving back the dangerous waters. Day three gives an even clearer picture: seeds buried and raised to bring life!
This will be the way for all life, even for Christ’s.
There will be a death, a burial, and then, fruitfulness – and that through pruning! Truly the way to life is through death.
PRAY for perseverance and hope in the midst of trials. May we be fruitful for Christ as we remain faithful in suffering.
