LOVE FOR CHRIST

Then Paul answered, "Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus." ? Acts 21:13

INTRODUCTION: This text reveals the secret of the beauty and untiring activity and matchless success of the life of Paul. This secret can be put in three words, LOVE FOR CHRIST. The Lord Jesus had Paul's whole heart. There have been many great men and great women in the history of the church of Jesus Christ. Some of their names we know. Some of their names we do not know now, but we shall some day. These great men and women are the men and women who have had a great love for Jesus. A man may have great gifts, but, if he has not great love for Christ, he is after all as a sounding brass and a clanging cymbal. Men and women who have a great love for Jesus ? that is what the church needs today. And a great love for Christ is what each one of us needs in our own heart.

I. WHAT LOVE FOR CHRIST WILL LEAD TO

1. Obedience to Christ

"If you love me, you will obey what I command." ? John 14:15

To the one who loves Jesus the words of Jesus will be his most precious treasure.

"Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him."

"If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him." ? John 14:21, 23

The one who loves the Lord Jesus will not be content with doing the will of Jesus when the knowledge of that will is forced upon his attention. It will be his constant study to discover more and more about the will of Jesus.

2. Purity

5

Jesus is the Holy One of God. He is infinitely pure. He hates sin. He hates sin in the life. He hates sin in the heart. If I love Him I will wish to be all that pleases Him.

3. Study about Him

We all wish to know all we can about those we love. If we love Jesus we will study about Him. We will study the four gospels and the prophecies and the epistles and the Revelation of Jesus ? Not from a sense of duty but because we want to know about Him.

4. Communion with Jesus

We always delight in communion with those we love.

5. Love for Christ will lead to likeness to Christ

We grow like those we love.

And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. ? 2 Corinthians 3:18

6. Love for Christ will lead us to work for Christ

7. Love for Jesus will lead to sacrifices for Jesus.

Listen to what Paul gladly bore for Christ:

Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false brothers. I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. ? 2 Corinthians 11:24-27

8. If we love Jesus we will proclaim Jesus. II. HOW TO LEARN TO LOVE HIM. Some of us have said in our hearts, "I wonder if I do love Christ?" Well, the Bible tells us how to have love.

1. We learn to love Christ by dwelling upon His love to us. 1_John 4:19. 2. To learn to love Jesus we must study much of Him in the Scriptures. The way to learn to love Him is learn to know Him. 3. It is the Holy Spirit who teaches us to love Jesus. He takes of the things of Jesus and shows them unto us. He bears witness of Jesus. He imparts to us His own love for Christ. 4. We learn to love Jesus at the Lord's table. There we see Jesus.

LOVE FOR SOULS

"Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears." Acts 20:31.

INTRODUCTION. -- This text gives us a look into the life and into the heart of Paul that stirs one's soul to the very depths. It is one of the most wonderful pictures in the Bible. (Picture.) It opens to us one of the great secrets of Paul's power.

I. The Importance of Love for Souls.

1. Because love for souls is an essential element of Christlike character. Not to have a love for souls is to be radically unlike Christ.

2. Because love for souls is necessary to successful efforts for their salvation.

3. Because lack of love for souls reveals either great hardness of heart or inexcusable ignorance.

II. How Manifested.

1. In a deep concern for their salvation.

2. In earnest efforts for their salvation.

3. In our being in a constant lookout for opportunities to have some one.

4. In going out to seek for them.

5. In joy over lost souls saved.

6. In sacrifices made to save them.

7. In deep sorrow of soul for those who will not be saved. Too often we are provoked rather than sad.
