"If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 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 ...." (2 Corinthians 5:13-15).
In this we are never discouraged, for discouragement then is disenchanted egotism. Be possessed by God's love - to do that we must hand over our will to Him volitionally; even picking up our cross daily.
Discouragement always comes when we insist on having it our way. May the love of God transform our understanding; each and every one of us thru righteousness. Therefore as we change into His likeness - what is our hearts desires, except for the will of God seeing the fullness of Christ Jesus; ourselves fully realized in Him? :). Press on toward what is ahead in Jesus = Our Transformation.
