Scripture – John 12:20-33
Message – “Life, Death, Life”
Gardening is a very rewarding endeavor. If you are willing to put forth some hard work, you can reap some great tasting rewards. But gardening also requires a lot of faith. First you must take a seed, which is basically a dried up piece of material from something that used to be alive but has died. This dried-up, lifeless seed is then buried in the dirt and left there. You now depend on the nutrients in the soil, the right amount of rain, the proper temperature and the avoidance of numerous harmful possibilities to cause this dried up, lifeless seed to come to life and produce fruit. Jesus says that entering into a relationship with him is somewhat like planting a seed. The life we have must be sacrificed so that we can gain eternal life. That requires a lot of faith. – Pastor Paul
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday at New Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Church!
