Winter, however, has a promise contained within it. It is the promise of spring, followed by another glorious summer and another potentially bountiful harvest. Yet in winter all the seeds that will bring that harvest are dormant, waiting for the awakening of spring.
Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit. He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” (John 12:24,25)
The seedbeds of revival are poverty and persecution. Though it seems like we are in a time of winter and our seeds are dormant, our winter brings the promise of spring and a new awakening. Like a compost of dead and decaying plant life, perhaps our wealth and comfort need to die so as to fuel that new life, the life that will be like the seed that dies and then brings forth new life and much fruit. What a beauty, what new life Spring brings to us! Even so, come Lord Jesus!
