Is the seed broken in earth of its own will?
Either it refuses the breaking and writhes in its rot or it is buried and broken in insignificance and worthlessness.
Paul, through the Holy Spirit, unfolds a logical dissertation in 1 Corinthians 15 that is imbedded in me. How can this mortal put on immortality?
Can the seed contain the power that gives it life?
The seed is created for displaying life, life in a form wholly different from itself. It falls into the ground and dies in order to produce fruit (John 12:24). Life must spring forth from that dirt, in spite of the dirt.
This dying, living is our life, bearing the image of that Heavenly Man; that death be swallowed in victory (1 Cor. 15:49,54).
