The Name

 

It’s early Spring.  Beginning blooms are poking through.  Winter was long, lifeless, and cold.  I love winter, but happy to move into another season.   

 Scripture, and seasons, are the inspiration for my blog title.  

John 12:23-28

23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25  He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. 27  Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.  28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

Jesus’ death was His glorification.  He died (willingly) so that He could produce fruit.   He served me.  I will serve Him.  Deny myself, take up my cross and follow Him.  Die to me so that I may produce for Him. 

I hope it’s a blog  for God’s glory.  I want to share how the teachings of Jesus touch my life and promote the Father’s doctrine of love.

The Lord bless all who read here.
