God does not have to come and tell me what I must do for Him, he brings me into a relationship with Himself where I hear His call and understand what He wants me to do, and I do it out of sheer love to Him.
(Oswald Chambers)

Do you do what you do out of sheer love to God? When people say they’ve been called to foreign service or some other particular sphere of work, they mean that their relationship to God has enabled them to realize that they can do this for God. They do what they do out of love for God.

God did what He did for you out of His great love for you. Don’t ever get over the wondrous fact that God loves you with an everlasting love and that He left the glory of heaven and came to this earth to go to the cross because He loves you. Because of what He did, your life has been transformed.

When He died, he died once to break the power of sin. . . . Give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. . . . Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace (Romans 6:10-14, NLT).

Hallelujah! God loved you and did this for you before you even knew Him. Does your love for Him motivate you to do anything for Him?

Assess your love for Christ. Choose to love Him more and more. Desire to serve Him better and be what He wants you to be . . . all because you love Him.
