Rich, golden, whispering grain
Holding within them the promise of
Hunger appeased with satisfying bread.
Yet the joy of overflowing harvest
Unless a grain of wheat falls in the ground and dies
For in the husk, it abides alone.
No greater love can there be than this,
Than One lay down His life for His friends.
See, the towel and the water bowl?
I call you My dearest friends:
There is no road I will not travel
To buy your free pardon
To set you free from the lifeless sod.
The Seed has been sown in the grave
And from Him we reap
A rich bountiful harvest
Of the treasures of God’s abundant grace.
And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. John 1:16
and so is his free gift to so many people through the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ.
… how much greater is the result of what was done by the one man, Jesus Christ! All who receive God’s abundant grace and are freely put right with him will rule in life through Christ.
Rom 5:15-17 GNB
