"For the love of Christ constraineth us;
because we thus judge,
that if one died for all, then were all dead:
And that he died for all,
that they which live should not henceforth
live unto themselves,
but unto him which died for them, and rose again."
2Corinthians 5:14-15
Desiring "Works" Of Love
I read an article about a missionary working in Africa. When someone asked him if he liked it,
he replied, "Do I like this work? No, my wife and I do not like dirt. We have reasonably refined sensibilities. We do not like crawling into huts through goats refuse. We do not like association with ignorant, filthy, brutish people.
But is a man to do nothing for Christ he does not like? If not, then God pity him.
Liking or disliking has nothing to do with it.
We have orders to "go" and we go.
Love constrains us."
(Missionary Known To God)
A love desire to please Christ is not something
extra for the Christian.
It is basic to Christian sanctity.
It is not a dessert, but the main course.
It is not a side-show, but the main tent.
It is not a motive to which we can resort to
when convenient . . .
it is a controlling force to which we have
committed our lives.
We abandon every thing else.
In time, applause and pleas of the world
have a hollow ring.
We are marching to a different drumbeat.
To see Jesus' smile should be
our singularly, greatest delight!
This should be our working goal.
This is the lifestyle of love.
"For God so loved the world . . ."
