Bible Topics: Motivation

Definition: The compelling force, such as a reason, emotion, need or desire, that causes a person to act or behave in a certain way.

1. As Christians, God's love is to be our motivation in all we do.

2. Our love for the Lord should motivate us to want to please Him.

3. Next to our love for God, our motivation should be unselfish love for others.

4. Our carnal natures lack true godly motivation, but God can transform our hearts and we can become new creatures in Christ!

5. We should not be motivated by desire for personal gain or self-glorification.

6. Nor should we be motivated by man-pleasing.

7. Worldly motivations are often for the wrong reasons.

8. Our service to God and others is nothing without our love.

9. We should also be motivated by a desire to glorify the Lord and to exalt His Name and not ourselves.

10. Self-sacrificial love comes from a grateful heart and a deep realization of all that the Lord has done for us.

11. God's Word inspires and fuels our motivation.

12. Jesus' example of being motivated by His love for God and others:

13. The Heavenly vision helps keep us motivated and moving in the right direction.

14. The Lord promises eternal rewards for all that we do out of love.
