Only where graves are

Frederick Nietzsche once remarked: "Only where there are graves are there resurrections."

I found that I needed to read the quote again and again.
Only where graves are...
.... is there RESURRECTION.

Of course, it is so straight forward.
Simple really.
But deeply profound.
We can only experience a resurrection - a rebirth - a renewal, where there has been a death.

John 12:24 - "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."

In longing for the NEW thing, let us not forget that the OLD needs to die first.

Living in Grace
