Easter Blessings

Perhaps you have considered the seed's transformation to wheat. The seed literally must be buried, split apart, before it emerges as a vulnerable sprout from the soil.
"Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it will bear much fruit." How many seeds does that one grain produce? Doesn't the stalk look entirely different from the wheat seed?

Maybe you've also pondered the vast difference in the appearance of Jesus after his burial, side split open and poured out, as He came forth from the grave. His best friends walked down the street with Him chatting and didn't realize it was Him until He had walked on. Had His Transformation been like the wheat which changed altogether as well? What does this Risen Life look like? Is Risen Life offered to us?

May this Easter bring the transformation of Christ to you.
