A devotion by Tim Lesher, Casa de Amor
We’ve continued to ask different people to tell us about their “why” in their ministry area, today we hear about Casa de Amor from Tim Lesher.
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
Here we see the beginning of Paul’s beautiful description of our ministry on earth. It is not that Christ’s love should be at the top of the list. It IS the top of the list. You see, the words “controls us” should mean it forces us to live our lives this way. It is not plan B. The love of Christ is it! We do this because Jesus died for ALL. God has called us to make sure that EVERYONE has the opportunity to feel and respond to the love of God, no matter their background or past. God loves all and we are called to love all. Let us challenge one another to never forget that we do this because of the love of Christ! Love all.
