Today... 'The Grain of Wheat'
The grain of wheat that fell into the ground and died
was none other than Jesus Christ the crucified.
He gave His life a sacrifice so that we might live
and as He died out loud He cried “Father forgive.”
Now from the travail of His soul He can all see
multitudes that have been saved for eternity.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified. Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
“The Grain of Wheat”
