His Sweetest Constraint

Believers in Yeshua Jesus are under the sweetest and strongest constraint to do what we do. It is not the fear of going to hell or the desire for reward that compels Believers to serve God. The everlasting love of Christ led Him to redeem us by His life, His death, and His resurrection. This love is shed abroad in our hearts. Believers are motivated by the love of Christ --- His love for us and our love for Him. Amen. ℛℒ

1 John 4:19 … We love him, because he first loved us.

Ephesians 2:4-5 … But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

Galatians 2:20 … I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

2 Thessalonians 2:16 … Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 … 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. ♥
