Love should be the greatest motivation for a believer when proclaiming the good news of Christ. It is the reason that makes us effective workers for Christ. Without love we become nothing but useless noise in an already noisy world.
1Cor. 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
Our actions have little value without love. If we proclaim Christ without love we can not produce proper works. We can make a choice to be effective workers for Christ or cogs in the wheel interfering with the proclamation of the gospel. Love is the key. We need to have a willingness to serve Christ in love. Any other choice and we become hypocrites and deceivers.
Do not be self centered but give the honor to God and make yourself a useful servant to God in Love. To better understand the meaning of the Love that we are to demonstrate and which should be our motivation take a look at the following verses.
1Cor. 13:4-8 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
Reflect on this love. Let it be your motivation to reach the lost with the salvation message so the world may know the riches we have in Christ.
Eph. 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
Eph. 2:5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
Eph. 3:8 To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
Col. 4:2-4 Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
