"For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this,
that one died for all, therefore all died;"
2 Corinthians 5:14
Paul was compelled to do all he did because of Christ's love for him. He was willing to endure hardship and press on to share the gospel because he loved His Savior. And He loved those for whom His Savior had died. For all are dead spiritually until they come to Christ and receive His gift of salvation. "This is the greatest foundation for ministry, wanting to give something to others because Jesus has given us everything. When we really receive the love of Christ, it touches us and makes us want to serve others." (Dave Guzik)
