Be Willing to Fall to the Ground

If you want to grow in your spiritual life and rise above your circumstances today, follow the unusual path of Jesus. Die to self first. Be willing to fall to the ground. Shed off your old self. Mortify the body of sin. Be buried.

Only then can you rise above the pit of destruction. Only then can you be resurrected to new life. Only then can you be made new. Only then can you really grow to become the new person God created you to be.

Many Christians don’t grow much NOT because of lack of spiritual nurturing or unfriendly spiritual environment but because of their unwillingness to die first.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:24
