A PURE HEART – HOW CAN WE HAVE IT?

He who Loses his Life for the Lord shall find it

Spread the love

This eternal principle of the wheat falling to the ground and dying was not just for our Lord Jesus! Our Lord clearly said that the same principle would be applied to His servants. The disciples knew this, and when they are called by the Lord, they readily let go of their own lives, their own hopes and dreams, and followed the call of the Lord to wherever that would lead them! What a fantastic attitude and a great picture for our lives too.

Our Lord also emphasized that “He who loses his life for my sake shall find it.” In fact, this saying is repeated in all four gospels (sometimes more than once) and is one of His most frequent sayings! (See Matt 10:39, 16:25, Mark 8:35, Luke 9:24, 17:33, John 12:25). Why? Because we all try so very hard to hang on to all that we think is ours… our possessions, our rights, our independence, our wisdom, our strength… And yet, standing against all this is an eternal principle that does not move. The principle states that unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides ALONE.
