I am predestined, called, justified and glorified, not to mention – saved (Romans 8:30) by someone who was stricken, smitten and afflicted (Isaiah 53:4).
If you know me, you would conclude that something is wrong with this picture.
But the reality is that there is nothing wrong with it. It’s God’s plan from the beginning of time. He loves me!
This is gospel motivation and it is indeed compelling.
The Gospel is my mission. The Gospel is my message. The Gospel is my motivation.
