Greetings,

As professing Christians, what drives us or motivates us in our life? Why do we do the things we do?

anyone who would like to join in here and share a little about what they honestly get motivated by in regards to Jesus.

Here are a few thoughts ideas to help you get going in this discussion.
  • Heaven
  • Salvation
  • Eternal life
  • Escaping punishment
  • Avoiding God's wrath
  • Reward
  • Staying Strong
  • Keeping Safe

there might be other things or reasons, too.

  • Jesus
  • Hope
  • fear
  • money
  • fame
  • acceptance from people
  • the list goes on (don't be afraid if it's something different altogether.)


One thing is certain, that being, that for most Christians they find something different about what drives them from before they became Christians.
Are there areas where we still carry baggage from the past or have somewhere picked it up again?
Perhaps we have heard some teaching or we are in a congregation or fellowship that emphasises certain doctrines or ideology that we go along with.. maybe not even realising it.

Do we do things that when we stop and really think about it, are things either in our mind or heart or actions that reflect a specific motivation or drive behind it and us?

please remember it is not a competition and try to keep honest about your input. We can all know about all the 'right' or correct or even acceptable things or reason for getting motivated in our walk with the Lord but in day to day, what motivates or drives you in all areas of your life?
Also, try to refrain from telling people what they should do or shouldn't do. There are plenty of avenues to do this if you feel you have to. Instead, share about what is right to you or what you would like to see better, if anything, etc.

There may be ways or things or thoughts that others have, too and there may be things that others have never thought about or knew was possible in this new life we share in Christ Jesus the Lord.

Are there any Scriptures that might be helpful?

Please be kind in your interaction with one another in the same way you would if Jesus was there in the midst of you (us) all.

Post in Peace,


Bless you ....><>

Greetings,

how about reputation? Would that be fair to add to the possible list?

Passion?
Zeal?

how about you? (there might be a clue in you)


Bless you ....><>

I did a bible study course from Randy Alcorn on Money and changed my entire outlook. its is amazing to look at money with eyes for eternity. We can not take money with us but we can use it now to store up treasure for us when we arrive in eternity.
that really gets me excited,

What drives or motivates me is not easily explainable.
Oh, I understand most of salvation and, all that goes along with it... Grace, Love, a free gift, etc, and, I have to read about over and over again!

It is just something inside that pushes me forward to talk about the word....I suppose that is one of the reasons that I am so opinionated.
That something inside, as I look back, occurred when, I believe I was Born Again....must be the Holy Spirit.

i am not the best at it but the Holy Spirit motivates me!

I agree with this and also wanting to please God, its pretty much those 2 things.

Helping others.......helping others know the Love of Jesus.........helping others know how much Jesus loves them.....helping others know that there is Hope in Jesus.
Know the joy of His Word.......Know that His Word Reigns.
Letting them know that no matter what the World tosses at them......no matter what is going on in the World.......God is in control!

Keeping the wolves out of Talk Jesus.

Realizing that but for the Grace of God...there go I.

With the Love of Christ Jesus Brother!

Being able to experience Him deeper and more intimately is what drives/motivates me. For me, it's all about relationship. Also, I know for a fact that since I've put my hand to the plow, there's no turning back. Honestly, there's absolutely nothing or no one that can fill my heart the way Jesus does. That within itself is the only motivation I need.
