Holy Week Tuesday: 16th April John 12: 20 – 26 The highest calling


20 Some Greeks were among those who had gone to Jerusalem to worship during the festival. 21 They went to Philip (he was from Bethsaida in Galilee) and said, “Sir, we want to see Jesus.”

22 Philip went and told Andrew, and the two of them went and told Jesus. 23 Jesus answered them, “The hour has now come for the Son of Man to receive great glory. 24 I am telling you the truth: a grain of wheat remains no more than a single grain unless it is dropped into the ground and dies. If it does die, then it produces many grains. 25 Those who love their own life will lose it; those who hate their own life in this world will keep it for life eternal. 26 Whoever wants to serve me must follow me, so that my servant will be with me where I am. And my Father will honor anyone who serves me.


Christians are called to give up their own life and to make living for Jesus their primary concern. We voice this every week when we pray ‘your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’ It’s a challenging calling, it’s a high calling. Holy Week should be a time when we are examining what we have signed up to.
