Love Motivates Us

Posted on

All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight, But the Lord weighs the motives.

Proverbs 21:2

This verse tells us that we should never be lacking in zeal but always have spiritual fervor. This implies we are motivated by love from the Spirit, and we always seek to do the Lord’s will. With a heart of love, there is nothing more interesting and exciting than serving the Lord.

Motivation comes from love in our hearts and it comes from serving the Lord. When we follow the Spirit being a light for Christ in this world, the Lord changes our heart and our life is centered on God and others.

Let all that you do be done in love. (1 Corinthians 16:14) A true Christian does everything with a heart of love, and all the glory goes to God; and the more love we have in our hearts the more love we have for the Lord.

For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. (1 John 4:20) We show our love for the Lord by reflecting his love to others. Love frees us from ourselves and as we minister to the world, and it becomes the most fulfilling and rewarding thing in our life.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10) Life to the full only comes from the Lord, when we give him priority in our life and reflect his love to others.

Today be motivated by love for others, and we show that love by leading others to Christ. And when we minister to others, we will experience closeness to the Lord.

Prayer: Fill my heart with your love, so I will be motivated to serve you today, with your love and compassion fills my heart that truly cares about others. Guide me in the Spirit so your love will grow stronger in my heart every day – my love for you and my love for others. In Jesus name.
