What’s Driving You? Podcast Episode 069

You may not have given it a lot of thought, but something drives you everyday. What we mean is, there’s a hidden force tugging and pushing on you from all sides to do or act right or wrong at any given moment. The word for this is compel.

In this week’s podcast, Daphne and Angie talk about being compelled by the Holy Spirit versus being compelled by your flesh or another source. The problem is that the Bible says if you sow to the flesh, you’ll reap of the flesh. But if you sow to the Spirit, you’ll reap the benefits of eternal life. This perfectly explains why God and Satan are in a war over your decisions! 2 Corinthians 5:14 says:

[Tweet “”The love of Christ compels us…” and that should be what’s driving us too!”]

  • I once had a mower that was self-propelled. It made mowing easier and faster as I only had to guide it, not push it. However, if I were to let go of the handle while it was self-propelled, I could end up with a mess; or worse, an accident where someone was hurt. Similarly, if I allow self-interests, self-righteousness, self-image, self-preservation, self-concern or self-ishness to operate uncontrolled I can expect a mess or accident involving others. Jesus said we are to DENY SELF and follow Him. If i am compelled to follow “self” I will not follow the Spirit’s compulsion to follow Christ Jesus.
