The very spring of our actions is the love of Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:14 (JBP)

For Christ’s love compels us...2 Corinthians 5:14 (NIV)

Christ’s love has moved me to such extremes. His love has the first and last word in everything we do. 2 Corinthians 5:14 (The Message)

The things you do are not proof of your value, worth, or significance.  They are not the measurements by which you try to justify your existence...instead, let Christ's love compel you. 

The things we do are our expression of love to the God who already loves us more than we dare ask or imagine.  They are not a resume; they do not earn us anything; they simply say, "I love you, too." 

So stop measuring.  Stop earning.  Stop comparing.  Stop performing.  Your worth is not hanging in the balance.  It does not depend on everything you achieve, every accomplishment you collect.  So relax.  Live in the freedom of knowing you are loved deeply and fully and completely...and eternally.  Instead of working so hard to prove yourself, just be in love...with Me.
