EXCEPT THE SEED DIE
John 12:24† Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
John 12:27† Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
HE PRAYED IN GETHSEMANE
Mark 14:35-36† And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.† 36† And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
DIE TO YOUR OWN DESIRES
John 12:25-26† He that loveth his life shall lose [apollumi, perish] it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.† 26† If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
ACCEPTED THE FATHERíS WILL

THE ONES BELIEVING HAVE HOPE

GLORY IS PURCHASED
2 Thessalonians 2:14† Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining [purchase] of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
CALLED TO HIS KINGDOM AND GLORY
1 Thessalonians 2:12-13 †That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.† 13† For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe [present active, ones believing].
THE WORD OF GOD
Luke 8:10-11† And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God (the seed that was sown): but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.† 11† Now the parable is this: The seed (the mysteries of the kingdom) is the word of God.
NEWNESS OF LIFE
1 John 3:2-3 †Beloved, now are we the sons [children) of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.† 3† And every man that hath [present active participle, also regard or esteem] this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

RAISED FOR OUR JUSTIFICATION
Romans 4:25† Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
JUSTIFIED ARE NOT CHARGEABLE

IN THE HEAVENLY CITY

I go to prepare a place for you.† 3† And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
WITH HIM IN GLORY

TO LIVE WITH HIM IS TO REIGN
