THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Fear not that your life shall come to an end, but that it shall never have a beginning.
Make the most of you, for that is all there is of you.
2 Cor 5:14-15
14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
15 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.
died that we might be forgiven,
died that we might live fuly and freely in His wonderful grace,
rose that we might be justified in the sight of God,
came to call us when we were on the road to hell,
washed us in His blood and sealed us in His Spirit,
wrote our names in the "book of life,"
prepared heaven for us,
He's preparing us for heaven.
THIS is the "LOVE of Christ!"
Meditate upon how He has LOVED you!
Know the POWER of His love to "constrain" you!
To HOLD you in His grip and to compel you forward in righteousness!
Let that power:
make you penitent, coming to His throne of grace to find "help in time of need,"
make you studious to find His will for your life through study of His Word,
make you a servant using your talents in His ministry,
make you a "friend indeed," encouraging your brethren through fellowship,
make you bold in witnessing to others of His holy love.
Above all, let that power "constrain" the focus of your planning and energies to live more for HIM and less for self.
