Monday, October 31, 2022 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments


2 Corinthians 5:14, For the love of Christ compels [controls] us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 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.

These questions goes to the heart of our motives or motivations

1. Why do people do what they do?

2. Why do we do what we do?

3. Why do you do things you are doing?

What We Know From Experience and Education

There are two motivational types: intrinsic and extrinsic

Intrinsic motivation (or internal motivation) comes from within

Extrinsic motivation (or external motivation) refers to external factors that drive you to do something.

There is Another, Higher, Motivation

Paul explained it this way to the Corinthians:

1 Corinthians 12:31 But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.
