Pine Cone Story

A pine cone story is one of cross and Resurrection. The sequoia pine cone, no bigger than 2 inches, comes from the largest tree, the largest living organism on the planet. A sequoia redwood can live over three thousand years. The cone from such a tree must go through fire in order to drop seeds. The cone must be destroyed by fire in order to produce life. We are like those cones. We must die to self in order to live for God. We must go through the fire of life in order to become who we are meant to be in the Lord’s eyes. Cross and Resurrection. This post is meant to tell those stories of defeat turned into victory by the grace of God.
