What keeps us motivated? What kept the Apostle Sha'ul motivated to go through all the obstacles he had to overcome? Pastor Lynval Henry presents "Knowing these things keeps us motivated."
This sermon was delivered at the Clark's Town branch of First Congregation of Yahweh International.
The core reading is taken from 2 Corinthian 5:10-21:
2 Corinthians 5:10 - 21 (KJV)
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of the Messiah; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Knowing therefore the terror of Yahweh, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto Elohim; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.
For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to Yahweh: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.
For the love of Messiah constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known the Messiah after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
Therefore if any man be in the Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
And all things are of Yahweh, who hath reconciled us to himself by Yahshua the Messiah, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
To wit, that Yahweh was in the Messiah, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
Now then we are ambassadors for Messiah, as though Elohim did beseech you by us: we pray you in the Messiah's stead, be ye reconciled to Yahweh.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of Yahweh in him.
