Discussion for 2 Corinthians 5:15

  • George Snider for verse 15
    This is the life a true Christian should take on once he she follows Christ
  • Mike C Opara for verse 15
    Since Christ loves us to the extent of dying for our sins, we who have been saved and redeemed back to God as a result of Christ's vicarious death are to recicrocate His love. We are expected from the point of knowing the Lord to live a concecrated life, a life totally dedicated to pleasing Him. It is said that one good turn deserves another. The only proof of our salvation and acceptance of Christ is our day to day right living, watchfulness, evangelistic zeal and a life of prayer. In summary, a true christian must live a life of obedience and service to the One he/she claims to believe in and love. "If you love me, keep my commandments"(John 15:14)."But why do you call me 'Lord, Lord' and not do the things which I say?"(Luke 6:46). Chrit will soon come to take those who are trully His and who are waiting for Him.(2nd Timothy 2:19). May the Lord help us to repent of all sins, accept Christ and receive the grace to please Him in all things in Jesus' name,Amen.
