I’m a Minnesota boy who was granted site at age 40. We have 4 children and 11 grandchildren.
This site – thedyingseed.com – is about our hope in Jesus (the gospel) and the fight to die to self because our identity is now in Him. And this means that sin must be defeated in us (Romans 6:6)
“…unless a grain of wheat falls to the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” (John 12:24-25)
The thing is… this is a battle. The fight to live a Christ-exalting life is a fight that must be waged every day. The enemy is strong and will not simply leave us alone. So, in the power of the Holy Spirit we must fight to live as the people we are.
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden in Christ with God. (Colossians 3:1-3)
