The love of Christ controls us

 

jcsinaiI still remember the Sunday morning service after the pastor was preaching from a passage in Corinthians about followers of Jesus being slaves to Him.  One of my young adults was just fuming – “I am a slave to no one he ranted.”

Here I am using the “control” word, another word that tears people up inside with lots of negative imagery.

We should be able to answer those who pride themselves on a person’s position in life and not on their heart.

The love of Christ can only control us if we are convinced that He died for all.  If He died for all then those of us who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who for our sake died and was raised.
