Christ’s Love Compels Us That We Receive New Life

VERSE OF THE DAY

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 (New Living Translation).

Share Audio.

Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.

What Does 2 Corinthians 5:14 Mean? ►.

For Christ’s love compels us, since we have reached this conclusion: if One died for all, then all died.

2 Corinthians 5:14(HCSB).

Verse Thoughts.

The cross of Christ most certainly paid the price for the sin of the whole world so that whosoever will may come – none are excluded from the forgiveness that flowed from the veins of the Messiah, which paid the price for all sin – NONE are excluded from this gift of God’s grace. The only reason that some are condemned is through their own unbelief – they are condemned because they have not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God.

The punishment for sin has been paid forever by the blood of Christ – the penalty of sin was paid in full, for every man that has ever breathed the air of God – and condemnation is removed forever, from all who believe that Christ died for their sins and rose the third day – God’s required price for sin was paid in full for every man – and all who believe are not condemned.

But the blood of Christ has a secondary function for all who would believe in Him – for as well as the forgiveness of sins for every man – the power of sin was simultaneously broken in the lives of all who would one day trust in the only begotten Son of God, as Saviour – for when He died, we who are His seed died in Him… we died with Him – His death became our death – and His resurrected life became our new life in-Christ – our new nature.

It was at the time of Christ’s crucifixion that the power of sin in the life of all who would one day believe in Him was broken. BUT it was also at the same point in time that we trusted in Christ as Saviour and became born-again as a new creation in Christ, that the power of sin in our life was severed as a practical reality.

OH! we are not sinless for we still have an old sin nature – and if we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us – but sin and death have no power over our new life in Christ – our new born-again life. Surely the love of Christ compels us who have trusted Him as Saviour to no longer live for ourselves but for to live our life unto Him – Who died for us and was raised again – that we might have life and have it more abundantly.

What does 2 Corinthians 5:14 mean? Some of Paul’s detractors may have been suggesting he and his co-workers were out of their minds. Paul used the phrase “beside ourselves” to suggest that level of insanity (2 Corinthians 5:13). It’s to be expected that a non-believer would think it insane for Paul to keep doing the very thing that brought him pain and suffering (1 Corinthians 2:14). Despite all the danger, they simply would not stop preaching about the gospel of Christ to as many people as they could. Now Paul answers firmly that he is not crazy. Instead, he is compelled to act by the “love of Christ.” That is, Christ’s love for him and for others is so motivating that Paul cannot bring himself to respond to it in any other way. He is driven—compelled—to keep telling others about it. In some sense, Paul may even be saying that Christ’s love literally controls his choices. Christ’s love has essentially taken Paul captive to do Christ’s work on earth, no matter what Paul may have considered doing otherwise. Because of Christ’s love for him and the world, Paul must continue. Paul and his co-workers for the gospel are absolutely convinced of one simple truth: One has died for all and therefore all died. By this, Paul means that Christ has died to pay for the sins of all humanity and His death has become the death required for all to pay for their personal sin. In a spiritual sense, all who trust in Christ died with Him when He died. Paul is describing what Bible scholars call “substitutionary atonement.” Christ, as the perfect sacrifice for sin, died in our place to atone for our sin. His substitution for us makes it possible for us to be forgiven for our sin by God’s grace through our faith in Christ (Ephesians 2:8–9). Context Summary Second Corinthians 5:11–21 describes an appeal to those in Corinth who know Paul. It’s important they understand he is not crazy for continuing to preach the gospel, even though it leads to so much suffering for him. Christ’s love compels Paul to continue to tell all people that they be reconciled to God through faith in Christ, just as he was. In Christ, God is not counting people’s sins against them, but instead giving them credit for Christ’s righteous life. As Christ’s ambassador, Paul begged all people to be reconciled to God through faith in Christ. Chapter Summary Why does Paul endure so much suffering for preaching about Christ? He continues here his discussion of eternity, comparing our earthly bodies to living in a tent. Paul would rather live in the eternal body God has prepared for those who trust in Christ, free from the groaning and burden that afflicts everyone here. With that to look forward to, he preaches with courage that all in Christ are new creations. In Christ, God is reconciling people to Himself, not counting their sin against them. Paul implores everyone to be reconciled to God in this way through faith in Christ.

What Does 2 Corinthians 5:15 Mean? ►.

And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the One who died for them and was raised.

2 Corinthians 5:15(HCSB).

Verse Thoughts.

Christ died for ALL. No one is excluded for all have sinned and so all need a Saviour – but sadly, not all will choose to accept God’s free gift of Salvation. Not all will make that specific response to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. The price for all the sin of the whole world collectively, which includes all the accumulated sin of every individual man and woman, was forgiven at Calvary. The only response required by God to be saved unto eternal life is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. It is not God’s will that any should perish but that ALL should turn to in Christ, of their own volition.

Christ died for ALL – no one is excluded and all who DO believe on the Lord Jesus Christ are given life – a new life – a new nature – the resurrected life of Christ. All who do believe on the Son of God are made a new creation in Christ – with a new life…. so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but should live for the Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us AND WAS RAISED – and we must never under-estimate the enormity of that glorious resurrection.

You see…without His death on the cross our sins would not have been atoned for and we would remain unforgiving sinners – dead in our trespasses and separated forever from a holy God – so praise God for the atoning blood of Christ on the cross of Calvary. But had Christ died without being resurrected, we would not have a LIVING Saviour – OH, our sins would have been forgiven at Calvary – but without a RESURRECTED Saviour… without a LIVING Saviour, death and hell would not have been conquered – and we could never have been given the new resurrected LIFE of Christ.

Christ died for all – and salvation is a free gift of grace that is available to whosoever will believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour, but the gift of His resurrection life is ONLY for those that trust in Him as Saviour. All who trust on Christ as Saviour are given His resurrection LIFE – our new life in Christ.

Surely, we who LIVE, we who have by grace received His resurrected life… surely, we should no longer live for ourselves, but for the Lord Jesus Christ who DIED for us and was also RAISED.

What does 2 Corinthians 5:15 mean?

Paul has described Christ’s role as our death-substitute. Jesus died in the place of humanity, to pay for each person’s sin. That death provides forgiveness of sins for those who come to faith in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:13–14). Jesus bled and died for the sake of sinners and was then raised back to life by God. Paul has said he is compelled—he is controlled and obligated—by Christ’s love to keep delivering this message to more and more people.

Part of the message here is that eternal salvation is not the single, solitary purpose behind Jesus’ death. He also died and was raised again so that those who trust in Him for salvation will stop living for themselves and begin to live for God. Christ intends that those who receive the gift of his death, for their sin, will respond by dying to selfishness in order to selflessly live for Him.

Chapter Summary.

Why does Paul endure so much suffering for preaching about Christ? He continues here his discussion of eternity, comparing our earthly bodies to living in a tent. Paul would rather live in the eternal body God has prepared for those who trust in Christ, free from the groaning and burden that afflicts everyone here. With that to look forward to, he preaches with courage that all in Christ are new creations. In Christ, God is reconciling people to Himself, not counting their sin against them. Paul implores everyone to be reconciled to God in this way through faith in Christ.

Either way Christ’s love is what we Believe in and follow to show us our life decisions to lead us to support and guidance it controls our every step in life since we believe that Christ died for all we dying with him in flesh but living with new spirit and new heart in new life in Christ that we died to our old selves and live now new life in Christ he died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. One died for all, then all died. Christ died for ALL. No one is excluded for all have sinned and so all need a Saviour – but sadly, not all will choose to accept God’s free gift of Salvation. His death became our death – and His resurrected life became our new life in-Christ – our new nature our new way of life. That death provides forgiveness of sins for those who come to faith in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:13–14). Jesus bled and died for the sake of sinners and was then raised back to life by God.So that those who trust in Him for salvation will stop living for themselves and begin to live for God. Only the Godly who received his salvation in Christ intends that those who receive the gift of his death, for their sin, will respond by dying to selfishness in order to selflessly live for Him.
