Motivation-it is what moves our hearts, our minds, our souls, our wills, and our bodies. What motivates a Christian to continue walking with God by faith, when neither sight nor feelings encourage him?
John 1:1 does not say “In the beginning was love,” although certainly love was there in the beginning. But that verse says, “In the beginning was the Word.” The greatest motivation for us in these last days will come from understanding what existed in the beginning. It was the Word. We were created by the Word (Genesis 2:7). The heavens were created by the Word (Psalm 33:6). The worlds were framed by the Word (Hebrews 11:3). Everything is held together by the Word (Hebrews 1:3).
It is not our feelings, our emotions, or our opinions that motivate us. It is the objectivity of the Word of God. Jesus said we are to live by every single word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
