So, I took yesterday off. I needed the break but now I’m left in ick… do I continue as I have?
I read the next bit and I’m left with nothing, no thoughts, no take away… just… blank.
The next verses are John 12:20-26. I’m sure there is so much fodder there for many, but well, I’m not them.
These verses start with some Greeks wanting to see Jesus and then the telephone game begins. They ask Phillip, so then he goes and tells Andrew and then they both go to Jesus and tell him.
Then Jesus speaks cryptically about the wheat which is probably a metaphor for him and then his followers but no mention of the Greeks… why were they even mentioned? They are never mentioned again… oh, in the next reading it mentions a crowd which could be the Greeks but…
I realize they probably weren’t even important to the story but why even bother mentioning them? What was the point? That even the Greeks wanted to get to know Jesus?
I don’t know.
So, Jesus talks about him being glorified. Then talks about the wheat and how it has to die off so that it can bear fruit, then loving your life and losing it vs hating life and having eternal life, serving Jesus and following him and being where he is as well…
What is in there for me? What pertains to my life right here, right now?
Honestly? I just don’t know. I guess this is that whole dying to ourselves. A reminder that there is more to life than just living for ourselves alone.
Well, that’s all I got… Maybe it’s my mood… I don’t know. I want to keep this up, I think it’s good for me, but the last few days it’s been a struggle…
Until next time… ♥️
