Holy Spirit · Inspiration · Motivation

motivation vs. inspiration…

Yesterday… I learned the difference between motivation and inspiration…

Motivation pushes people to do what they should…

Inspiration pulls the desire… or spirit… to do what they should do out of them…

To inspire… is to lift others to pursue a higher purpose…

God inspires… He is not pushy…

He actually puts His Spirit in us… to inspire and empower us… to do what is right… to fulfill His purpose for our lives… to encourage something greater…

By His Spirit… His people are called to inspire too…

We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Thessalonians 1:3 NIV

A work of faith… a labor of love… inspired hope to endure…

Faith… hope… love… the means He gives us… to inspire us…

Things we do by His Spirit… to inspire others…

Have you felt His inspiration lately…?

Is there someone He’s calling you to inspire…? with faith…? hope…? love…?
