TOPIC: PERSUADED BY GOD’S LOVE
Bible Text: 2 Corinthians 5:11-15
Memory Verse: “For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.” 2 Corinthians 5:14, NIV
One day, certain Christians went out for evangelism in their neighbourhood like they always do. They passionately distributed tracts and preached to people. At a point, an unbeliever met them He shouted: “What exactly is your problem you people, don’t you have something better to do?” Then a Deacon boldly answered him: “We have found the love of God, that’s why we are crazy for Him, what else can be better than this?”
Like the Deacon, Apostle Paul was zealous for the salvation of the people in the first century. He dared all things and was bold to confront anyone with the message of the gospel. He constantly put his life at risk, seeking to win souls for the kingdom. People were amazed about his exploits and he reveals in our text that it is the love of God that controls and drives him.
What drives you to do what you do? If you desire to make great impact on people’s lives, you ought to be inspired and compelled by the love of God. Let it be the force that drives you in your kingdom advancement pursuit. Note that the love of God is to see sinners coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Insight: God’s love is genuine, perfect and different.
Prayer: God, ignite new fire of your love in my heart in Jesus name!
