What Drives Us To Accomplish?


January 23, 2011

For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
-- 2 Corinthians 5:14-15

What motivates us to do what we do? What drives us to accomplish, to achieve, and to pursue even more? Paul said that love was his compelling force. What would happen in our lives if love was truly THE compelling factor in our motivation and behavior? What if our desire to love those who do not know Jesus'
saving grace became our all-consuming concern? He died so that it would be! Let's not disappoint him.
