Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
Do you not know that you are no longer your own? Your life has been bought by my blood – I have purchased you. So you no longer live to satisfy only your own desires. Instead I have given you life that you would be my glory carrier, that you would spread abroad my fragrance. As you lay aside your life for my Kingdom, many will come to know me.
Choose this day whom you would serve!
