About Our Ministry

In 2007, God gave me the name of the ministry to launch the Bible Study, Jesus Lives. He did it through giving me the privilege of counseling many women through these verses before He breathed on it and told me that these Scriptures were the ministry’s verses.

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.”  2 Corinthians 5:14-15

If I get tired or discouraged or when satan attacks or if at first the mountain seems really high to climb, I remember this one fact: Christ’s love is so amazing. It surpasses all knowledge. The vastness of Jesus’ love is described in these verses:

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”  Ephesians 3:16-19

Once a person begins to grasp the width, length, height, and depth of Christ’s love and Christ begins to dwell in her so that she no longer lives, but Jesus lives in her, then her life will never be the same. She will no longer live for herself, but will be motivated to serve her glorious Savior. Whatever the battle...whatever the cost. She will dig in and stay determined to the mission God has given her because she is motivated by Christ’s love. As the Scripture that God highlighted to me says in 2 Corinthians 5:14, “Christ’s love compels us.” Therefore, the ministry is simply called Christ Compels Ministry.
