The Compulsion of Love : Sermons Preached at Ossining-On-Hudson, N. Y., in the Highland Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Compulsion of Love: Sermons Preached at Ossining-on-Hudson, N. Y., In the Highland Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church If the question be raised as to whether Christ's love for us is meant, or our love for Him, I answer I believe the meaning in the context is Christ's love for us, and yet both ideas are comprehended in the passage; Christ's love for us first in the order of time, and our love for Him as the reciprocal in ﬂuence of His love upon us. Now in seeking for the principle of agreement between these teach ings, the type of compulsion spoken of in the text must be noted, For the love of Christ constraineth us. It is not the compulsion of superior physical strength, but the compulsion of love. Not a com pulsion wrung from a man's inability to resist, nor one that is granted with even so much as a feeling of protest; but one that a man grants gladly, joy ously, when he comes to a realization of the won derful meaning of the love of Christ.
