Christ’s love compels us…
  1. To sincerely obey (2 Corinthians 5:11-12; Romans 12:9 NIV)
  2. To love like crazy (2 Corinthians 5:13 NLT; 2 Corinthians 5:14 NIV; John 14:15; John 13:35)
  3. To live like crazy (2 Corinthians 5:15-18; Weird Light Shine; 1 Corinthians 11:24-25 NKJV)
2 Corinthians 5:11-12
11 Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too. 12 Are we commending ourselves to you again? No, we are giving you a reason to be proud of us, so you can answer those who brag about having a spectacular ministry rather than having a sincere heart.
Romans 12:9 (NIV)
9 Love must be sincere.
2 Corinthians 5:13 NLT
13 If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit.
2 Corinthians 5:14 NIV
For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.
John 14:15
15 If you love me, obey my commandments.
John 13:35
35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.
2 Corinthians 5:15-18
15 He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.
1 Corinthians 11:24-25 (NKJV)
24 And when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
