Seeds are only able to manifest their power and purpose after they die. In this passage of Scripture, Jesus began to prepare His disciples for His death, so they would understand good things come from bad things. Jesus demonstrated that reassurance and purpose come from spending time with Father God in prayer; this gave Him strength to fulfill His purpose on earth. A sower sows the seed he has. Jesus sowed the seed of His life, the only seed He had. We are all sowers and have seed to sow during our time here on earth.
