Christ’s Compelling LoveII Corinthians 5:12-17


Introduction 1
Introduction-1

  • In the first part of chapter 5, Paul speaks of the resurrection of the dead, his desire to be with Christ and the final judgment

  • In V14 he says that the “love of Christ” compelled him

  • The word compel (sunecho) means to confine, to hold fast or to urge

  • The idea is that Paul’s behavior was regulated and restricted

  • Not only by the fear of the judgment which influenced Paul- V11

  • It should also cause us to live righteously


Introduction 2
Introduction-2

  • Nor was it just the reward which Paul spoke of previously- V1

  • And not by his calling to preach the gospel to the Gentiles- Acts 9:15

  • Which also motivated Paul

  • But the thing that he mentions here is the “love of Christ”

  • I want to consider the love of Christ and how it should compel us in the lesson this morning

  • The Son of man who was a decendant of David

  • Whose love for us is the same as the Father’s love- Jn. 3:16

  • What a great honor it is to be the object of the love of one so exalted and so powerful- I Jn. 3:1

In Conclusion

  • The love of Christ compelled Paul to live for Christ and to preach His gospel

  • It should compel us also

  • He has promised those who do these things an inheritance in Heaven with Him

  • Has the love of Christ compelled you to obey His word?
