“The Hour Has Come” John 12:20-26

The Spoken Word Christian Church https://thespokenwordchurch.com

Often times, when we read the Bible we are faced with concepts that run contrary to the human sinful nature that wants the world to revolve around us.  Listen today as Pastor Bob discusses the topic of “Dying to Ourselves”.  This is a phrase that many Christians have heard before but may not have a complete understanding of.

Our Bible text for Today’s Message is from John 12:20-26

Jesus Predicts His Death

Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the festival. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.

23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Very truly I tell you, 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. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
