I went to church here. I didn’t understand everything that was said, but I did learn.
The main passage was John 12: 23-25.
Here it is in NIV (1984):
Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. I tell you the truth, 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. The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”
Reading this helped me understand all the illustrations given at church. I guess you can tell what it was about, too, from reading this, can’t you? 🙂
Soo … the day after my first date with God (I wanna have another), God was telling me that only if I hate my life here will I keep my life for eternity.
