“The love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves — but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-15

If the love and power of Christ constrains us, we must be meditating and relying on Him and His death. This will cut off all self-confidence and lead us entirely to Him, that He may work everything in us and through us. O Lord, may Your love on the cross fire my frozen heart also, that I may now begin to love and praise You purely and fervently and to offer my whole life up to You as an entire sacrifice of love; that I may be willing to resign myself wholly into Your hands, trusting implicitly in Your Divine sovereignty and grace.

Reader, your zeal for Christ, your love to Christ, and your strength to do the will of Christ, will be just in proportion to your faith in Christ. Faith realizes the love of Jesus, yields the heart to Jesus, draws supplies from Jesus, and consecrates the entire person to Jesus. The love of Christ constrains us, just in proportion as we believe and realize it.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
