Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
Do you struggle with accepting other people as they are?
Christ accepted you and I when we were but sinners.
We were and still are imperfect.
We were covered in sin, and yet, He loved and accepted us just the same.
In the body of Christ, we are commanded to accept one another, just like Christ accepted us.
This will bring glory, honor, and praise to Father God.
We are not called to clean the fish, but simply to go fishing in faith.
When we ‘catch’ people up in the Gospel of Truth, and they come to the kingdom, we should accept them.
It isn’t our job to judge or cast them out because they may look a little different from us.
Sometimes other people’s sin is so glaring to us because it just looks different from our own.
What would we have done if Christ rejected us when we called to him?
We wouldn’t stand a chance.
So I encourage you believers, to be accepting of your fellow man and woman.
Love each other as you love yourself and as Christ loves us all.
- Prayer: Father God, thank you for accepting me when I called to you from the depths of despair! Thank you for loving me and making me a new creation! I truly believe that those you call you will guide and mold and make into new creations also. Help me to love and bestow kindness upon your sheep just as you do. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
