Message: “The More You Lose, The More You Gain” from Andy Veith

The More You Lose, The More You Gain

Jesus’ audience understood farming so he took an opportunity to express a paradox through the story of a seed. The terms Jesus used were easy to understand. They knew that a harvest was the result of dying seeds giving way to new life. Jesus’ life must be given up so that new life can be realized by those who would believe and follow Him. For the follower of Jesus, seeking honor from the Father would require humble self-giving service. Emptying oneself in service to Jesus is the only path to righteousness. This paradox of living in a way that is seemingly dishonorable (dying to self) is the path to greater honor (from God Himself).
