A Grain of Wheat by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/13/11

“I felt like giving everything to God would mean I couldn’t enjoy anything again.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When we choose the pathway of surrender, we may think it will be the end.

“Finally, things got so bad that I had to surrender everything to God.”

Nancy: It is the end for our pride and the rule of our flesh, but it’s just the beginning of life in the Spirit.

When Jesus predicted His death, He said, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified.”

He explained what He meant in John 12: “Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.”

Jesus calls us to die so He can produce His life in and through us. Have you done that? As one friend said to me:

“It’s like going from black and white to full color.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb.” – Basilea Schlink
