Motivated By Fear-Short Quote

2 Mar

“We should evangelize out of our love for God. But if that isn’t enough, our love for other people should motivate us. Scripture tells us we should also be motivated to evangelize out of our fear of God. We will stand before the judgment seat and be recompensed for our works, Paul says, and therefore, since we know the fear of God, “we try to persuade men” (2 Corinthians 5:10-11). Love is one motivator, fear another, reward yet another. If one or two don’t suffice, the three together should.” Randy Alcorn
