By Love Compelled

Have you ever noticed that you cannot steer a boat that is not moving? You can turn the tiller or the wheel in any direction you choose, but nothing happens. Unless the rudder is firmly affixed, and there is water flowing by it, your location and your direction remain unchanged. Even a great ship in this condition can be tossed by waves and wind and suffer great harm—unless of course it is anchored to something bigger and stronger than itself.

This is true also of a life without a rudder, direction, or anchor. A man or woman in this condition can do nothing but drift. And that drift is always from truth, even if gradual and sometimes imperceptible. Dr. D. James Kennedy's message titled, “By Love Compelled,”is about one such man. He was rescued by God from a sea of intellectual flotsam and jetsam and given a purpose for living and an everlasting anchor for his soul. The transformation by Jesus Christ of Adoniram Judson is a marvelous witness to what great things God can accomplish through one man.

About D. James Kennedy, Ph.D.

The late Dr. D. James Kennedy remains one of the most listened-to Christian ministers in America. His forthright and rational presentation of the Gospel is heard via television, radio, and the Internet throughout America and the world.

Dr. Kennedy, who entered the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ, on September 5, 2007, began his Christian life in 1953 after he was startled awake one Sunday morning by a preacher's stern question coming out of his clock radio. "Suppose you were to die today and stand before God," the voice boomed, "and He were to ask you, 'What right do you have to enter into My heaven?' — what would you say?" Dr. Kennedy soon discovered the answer, was converted to Christ, and shortly thereafter was called into the Gospel ministry. Today, Dr. Kennedy's broadcast messages are televised to a nationwide audience.

Dr. Kennedy served for 47 years as Senior Minister of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A modest mission church of 45 people when Dr. Kennedy arrived in 1959, the rocketing growth of the church made it, for 15 years, the fastest growing Presbyterian church in America. Decision magazine named the church one of the "Five Great Churches of North America." In 2005, Dr. Kennedy was inducted into the National Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Dr. Kennedy's energetic commitment to both evangelism and cultural renewal is demonstrated by four organizations he founded: Truth in Action Ministries (formerly Coral Ridge Ministries), Evangelism Explosion International, Knox Theological Seminary, and Westminster Academy.
