The Joy of Discovery
word of life Florida 30th ANniversary
What motivates us – achievements, relation- ships, status, money? As a follower of Jesus Christ, our highest motivation should be to live a life pleasing to Him. Why? Because of the deep and amazing love God has for us. When we turn our thoughts towards His love, it will give us joy in our service and will motivate us to do all things for His glory. Paul explains in 2 Corinthians 5:9-20 what drives his relationship with the Lord: To be well-pleasing to Him (verse 9), to be ready for his required appointment at the Judgment Seat (verse 10), and to be an ambassador (verse 20). Verses 14-15 are the heart of the message, “For the love of Christ compels us... that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” The Bible says each of us will someday stand before the Lord and will give an account of our works and that which motivated us in life. As Jack Wyrtzen used to say, “Only one life will soon be passed. Only what’s done for Christ will last.” So, keep fighting the good fight, running the race, and sharing the Good News! True joy is found when we can say, “God, here’s my life; I am Yours.”
