DIE TO SIN AND GROW: ANALOGY BETWEEN YOU AND A SEED

As a seed will first ‘die’ before germinating (John 12:24). So also,a man must first die to sin before his/her spiritual growth. Your spiritual life is what defines you. It is your spiritual life that will determine every other aspect of your life. If you do not grow spiritually,you are going nowhere not even that height you want to reach. It’s not a curse,but the home truth,because everything you want to attain is found in no other place other than HOLINESS. Therefore,to grow in every aspect of your life,you must first die to sin.
Let’s study why a seed must die before its growth. It dies so that the conditions for growth become favourable and when this happens,it grows in the right way. There will be no stagnation ’cause all the conditions are met. What is left for it is to spring forth [which depends on what we will discuss in the next paragraph].Likewise,if a man DIES TO SIN (not to die to sin today and be alive in it tomorrow; but forever),nothing on earth can stop his/her progress.People blame evil forces,but do you think that ‘they’ will have power over you if you are in Christ (dead to sin)? Blame your undoing on your sinful ways. Remember,these evil forces work in the spiritual realm. So,why can’t you brace yourself up spiritually with the whole armour of God (Ephesians 6:11-18).
For your crops to grow,you must do what will make them to spring forth. You must water and ‘dress’ your farmland (eg. weeding,etc).Likewise,you must ‘water’ your spiritual life with the Word and ‘dress’ it with prayer and other NECESSARY things. Called them necessary because that is what they are! You can’t grow without them,just like a plant won’t grow without water and proper care. I talked about weeding the other time,you need to weed some things out of your life like the bad companies you keep,the movies you watch,the books you read,the songs you listen to,etc. Because these are what will shape you to becoming what you will become.
For you to grow,you must die to sin,read the Word and pray daily. Shalom.
