Jesus used many analogies to teach us the truths of the
kingdom. One of these was the lesson of the seed-grain, in which He
compared the life of the believer to the process of development of a
grain of wheat.
“‘Unless a grain of wheat falls into the gound and
dies,’” He said, “‘it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much
grain’” (John 12:24, NKJV). This process is the same one we must go
through if we are to bear fruit as we are called to do.
