Compelled to Go
Some ask, "Why would we go...why would we raise our children in such a place?"
In short, we go because we are living for Christ and not for ourselves. And wherever Christ wants us to be is the best place for us! We are compelled to go because of His love and what He did for us.
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Either way, Christ's love controls (or "compels" as the NIV says) us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them." (NLT)
The more we understand that Christ died and was raised for us, for our sake, then the more willing we become to live for Him and not for ourselves. Because of Christ's love for us we are compelled to go...to go to the nation of Mozambique.
