are you born againAmazing Grace! I’m often asked, “What keeps you going?” Simply, the love of Christ “compels” me, or “holds me together” no matter how dim things look. The apostle Paul wrote:

“For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 1

An Inspiring Response…
