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 development process of a
grain of wheat.

“Unless a grain of wheat falls into the gound and
dies, 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.

Let us turn to the seed-grain and see the picture lesson,
that in these last days we may intelligently yield to the pierced hand
of God and permit His fullest purposes to be fulfilled in us.
