I’m Dying, This is the good life

Im dying
Sunday morning as I was taking communion in my office before service I was reminded of the words of Jesus.
John 12:24-26
Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25 Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.
Truly Jesus was that grain of wheat that fell to the ground and was buried. Rising again He brought multitudes to life! The same is true of you and me. Unless we follow the example of Christ and die to our own will, we will not bear fruit. If we, like Christ, lay down our lives in service to the Father, we will bear much fruit.
After I took communion, and finished praying, I wrote this song.
Lord I come to die
To lay down my life
So here I am a living sacrifice
I’m dying, this is the good life

Lord I’m giving up
Lord I’m laying down
Lord wont You plant this seed into the ground
I’m dying, this is the good life

That I might live again
In power and victory over sin
Resurrected Free
Not I but Christ in me
I’m dying, this is the good life
