"A Love That Compels


“A Love That Compels”


For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.  And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again.      2 Corinthians 5:14-15


In an individual’s lifetime, they will experience different types of LOVE.  But the ONE LOVE that excels ALL other types is the LOVE of JESUS CHRIST, this LOVE is what is KNOWN as an AGAPE LOVE or the LOVE of GOD.  And Jesus Christ, God’s Son, who SUFFERED, BLED and DIED a HORRIBLE, TORTUROUS death on a RUGGED, WOODEN CROSS, so that WRETCHED, SINFUL, mankind could be RECONCILED to the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS God of ALL creation, is the personification of COMPELLING LOVE.


Jesus Christ was born solely for the purpose of illustrating the COMPELLING LOVE of a MERCIFUL, GRACIOUS, LOVING GOD, who so LOVED His creation, MANKIND, that He was willing to COME to EARTH as a HUMAN BEING, and LIVE a SINLESS LIFE, ministering to mankind, and LOVING them with an UNENDING, UNFAILING LOVE, which is drawing many people to Him for their SALVATION and a relationship of RECONCILIATION. 


For those who are willing to TURN AWAY FROM their sinful lifestyles, because of the LOVE that COMPELS them, they are CONVINCED that the ONE, JESUS CHRIST, DIED for ALL and therefore ALL must DIE to their OLD LIFE, and NO LONGER LIVE for themselves, but to LIVE for the ONE who SUFFERED, BLED, and DIED for them, and was RAISED again, from DEATH and the GRAVE, in order for them to have RECONCILIATION and an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and to be able to ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS. This is POSSIBLE because of a LOVE that COMPELS THEM. 


Have you experienced the LOVE that COMPELS you to COME to JESUS for the SALVATION of your soul?  Have you DIED to YOURSELF, and are you LIVING for Christ? Have you been RECONCILED to the ALMIGHTY GOD?  If your answer is NO to these questions, then you are destined to spend your ETERNITY in HELL.  But God has provided a WAY for you to ESCAPE that DESTINY.  And this is the PLAN: You MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT God’s Gift of SALVATION and allow His LOVE to COMPEL you to LIVE for HIM.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
