When we were young, we loved trying to catch the “helicopter seeds” that fell from the Maple trees. Each seed resembles a wing. In late spring they twirl to the ground like a helicopter’s rotor blades. The seeds’ purpose is not to fly, but to fall to earth and grow into trees.
Before Jesus was crucified, He told His followers, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds”
While Jesus’s disciples wanted Him to be honoured as the Messiah, He came to give His life so we could be forgiven and transformed through faith in Him.
As Jesus’s followers, we hear His words, “Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servants also will be. My Father will honour the one who serves me”
Helicopter seeds can point us to the miracles of Jesus, the Saviour, who died that we might live for Him.
JESUS CALLS US TO GIVE OUR LIVES IN SERVING HIM.
