The scripture for today, May 14, is 2nd Corinthians 5:14a as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“For Christ’s love compels us….”
Jesus died both physically and spiritually in our place! (Remember when he said God had forsaken him?) He knew we couldn’t come back from either one on our own, so he did it for us. Such terrible things he went through for us!
Love is powerful! It causes us to do things for someone we love that we never wanted to do and never dreamed we could do.
How powerful is your love for Christ? Do you share the love of Christ with others? 1st John 4:18 says, “Perfect love casts out fear.”
You must reach out to people who think Jesus will ruin their fun, or has too many rules, or could never forgive them, or wouldn’t stop a tragedy from happening to them. If not in person, tell them in a note, a phone call, email, even a song. There are ways. Reach out. You can and you will, for Christ’s love compels you!
