Many times a verse in Scripture will convey two seemingly different meanings. Then we find out these different meanings when brought together, reveals ONE greater profound meaning of Truth. 2 Corinthians 5:14, "For the love of CHRIST compels us..." Does this mean CHRIST'S love for us; or does it mean Our love for CHRIST; or does it mean that "both" are needed to deny ourselves? We will never crucify our flesh out of guilt or obedience to rules, in order to get a promised reward. If we are WON BY FEAR, of GOD'S wrath which will let us burn in hell, there is no trust or relationship. If we are ONE BY LOVE, just spending time with HIM gives us life, peace, joy and meets our deepest needs of intimacy. WON BY FEAR, is temporary; ONE BY LOVE, is for eternity.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
