One of the Crazy Ones Because of the Love of Christ


One of the Crazy Ones Because of the Love of Christ

II Corinthians 5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead

Why should we be one of the crazy ones? What would motivate us or move us to be a crazy one in the eyes of the world and many times in the eyes of other Christians? The first thing should be the love of Christ! The love us Christ should not only motivate us, it should capture us! Think about it for a moment. Think about how much Christ loved and loves you. He came and left heaven for you. He was beaten, spit upon, battered and bruised for you. He hung on a cross and thought of you. He bled and struggled on that cross for you. He did it all because He loved you! If you were the only person on the earth, He still would have came and died for you! Think about how much Christ loved and loves you! He loved us while we were still sinning! He loves us even when we don’t love him back! WHAT LOVE CHRIST SHOWS US! That love should motivate us to live for Him! The whole purpose of doing what we do is the love of Christ! That word constraineth means to impel, to motivate or even to capture us. It is saying the love of Christ should bind us to serve and live for Christ! The love of Christ should motivate us to serve and to share the gospel with the world! It is the love of Christ that should be what our whole purpose as a Christian is wrapped up in. We live for Him because He died for us! Remember, we are bought with a price. That means we are no longer our own! The reason we should be one of the crazy ones is because of the love of Christ! Will you let the love of Christ motivate and move you to live for Him?
