It was love that motivated the Father to send His Son Jesus to redeem mankind. That same love has been poured out into the heart of every believer.
God's love in us calls and compels us to do something about the plight of lost people. Even as Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:14 , For the love of Christ compels us.
A few years ago, late at night I would hear what seemed to be a very faint chime or bell. Several times I got out of bed to try and find the source of the sound, but it always stopped before I could discover it.
Finally, one evening, I found out what it was. It was an old watch I had, tucked away in a drawer under some junk. Every evening, the alarm would go off at the same time.
The call of God's love in your heart can be like that. Sounding regularly but seldom heard. Buried under personal ambitions, cares and problems, daily routines and the general busyness of life. But it is unmistakably there!
The same love that moved Jesus to heal the sick and minister God's life to broken people is in you! Listen to it. Get in touch with it and express it to someone in need.
