Jesus Christ Accepts You!

382753Christ accepted you, so you should accept each other, which will bring glory to God.  Romans 15:7

Let us accept one another because Jesus Christ, our Lord, has already accepted us.  The LORD has already freely given us all things.  He withheld nothing from us, not even the life of His only Son; therefore, we no longer have to try to love others so we could earn our blessings from God.  Instead, because of His grace, we love others through our fullness of Him.

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:32)

Even since we were under sin, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).  Christ died for you and He died for me.  He died for our friends and He died even for the ones who hate us.  Jesus loves them, so in honor of the One who died for us, we love them too. This brings honor to the name of Jesus Christ and glory to God, The Father!

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (1 John 4:12)
