Paul felt the same way. “For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and He died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for Him who for their sake died and was raised” (2 Corinthians 5:14–15). Such love makes us “ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us” (5:20).
Is the love of Christ controlling your mission and ministry? Your audience should sense Christ’s love in the message and ministry of the gospel. Make sure that your motivation is not a man-made agenda, or an organization driven program. This results in converts following people, not Christ.
