His Love – A Compelling Force by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

His Love - A Compelling Force by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

For the love of Christ constraineth us;
because we thus judge, that if one died
for all, then were all dead (2 Corinthians
5:14).

Did you know that at the end of all things, the
only thing that’ll stand is your love for the
Lord Jesus? If you lived a whole life to be
recognized by men, to be famous and have all that
money could buy, but the Gospel of Jesus Christ wasn’t
a compelling force in your life, you’d have lived an
empty life.

The Lord Jesus said in Mark 8:36, “For what shall
it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and
lose his own soul?” Then in Matthew 6:33, He said, “But
seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.” What else
could a Christian possibly live for, if not Christ and His
Gospel? He’s all that counts. He’s the joy of heaven and
earth.

As Christians, we’re not to be moved by anything
else, but by Christ and His eternal Word. That means
His Word doesn’t just come to you without impact; it
brings a conviction to your heart and compels you to
act; to do things that are pleasing to the Father. No
wonder the Lord Jesus said in John 14:15, “If ye love
me, keep my commandments.”

It matters that you’re compelled by the love of
Christ to do the things that you do on earth. The
Apostle Paul in our opening scripture shows us the motivational force behind his overwhelming passion
for the Gospel; it was the love of Christ. He was
constrained by this love to preach the Gospel, and do
all that he did in furtherance of the Gospel.

Have the same consciousness. Make Jesus your
focus, and be compelled by His love in all you do.

PRAYER
Dear Lord Jesus, I love you with all my heart. I thank
you for the privilege of being a custodian of the
Gospel, which has become the compelling force in
my life. I’m ever afire for the Gospel, shining ever so
brightly as a light in my world. Hallelujah!
