sermonette: The Greatest Motivation
God's Agape Spirit
Given 14-Jun-14; Sermon #1218s; 16 minutes
Most people are not aware of the motivations that drive their behavior. Are we cognizant of our own motivations? Are we analyzing the activation, persistence, and intensity of them? Psychologists have concluded that fear and pleasure are the primary drivers. Our relationship with God begins in fear, but becomes agape love as we reciprocate His love out to others. As God's called-out ones, we are preparing to become the Bride of Jesus Christ. Agape is the bond of perfection liberating us from a selfish fear to a selfless love, reflecting our Heavenly Father's example of sacrificial giving.
