The Love of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:11-15)

Michael Argabrite, September 10, 2017
Part of the 2 Corinthians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Why do Christians live differently than those who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ?

What did Paul know that enabled him to live the way he did?

I. Paul knew the "fear of the Lord" (2 Cor. 5:11-13).
II. Paul knew the "love of Christ" (v. 14-15).

2 Corinthians 5:11-15

11 Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God, and I hope it is known also to your conscience. 12 We are not commending ourselves to you again but giving you cause to boast about us, so that you may be able to answer those who boast about outward appearance and not about what is in the heart. 13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. (ESV)
