Christ’s love controls us.
II Corinthians 5:14 (NLT)
We can let a lot of things control us. Fear, anger, lust, greed, pride are just a few emotions vying for the control of our heart. Painful emotions are powerful motivators. Regulating them is a full-time job. But Paul knew the secret to returning to joy from agonizing emotions. He let the love of God fill his thoughts. He called upon the love of Christ for mercy and grace. Surrendering to Christ brought him peace and hope. This love of Christ can do the same for you. Today, you have a choice. You can choose what will control you. Choose Christ’s love.
Dear Christ, pour out Your love upon me. Fill me, guide me, direct me. Make me so conscious of Your love that I am under its control. In Jesus’ name.
