They don’t relate, you say?
Actually, they kind of do.
When you plant a potato plant, you can harvest the crop later. But did you know that for all the potatoes to blossom, one has to die?
It’s called the seed potato. It’s a mushy, brown, and ugly potato that is generally around the main root. This is the most important one, because it contains all the seeds to grow a new plant after the winter.
That is exactly like Jesus. For us to live, someone perfect had to die, and Jesus filled that niche. He had all the seeds to make us blossom in our new lives, but he had to die to make sure we would.
John 3:16- For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
