Accept one another

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.  Romans 15:7

All of us who have chosen to follow Jesus Christ are simply saved by the grace of God.  It has nothing to do with our works or with our righteousness.  Our righteousness before the Lord is like filthy rags.  We are righteous simply because of what Jesus has done and who He is.

We are called to accept one another in the body of Christ.  We need to look beyond the differences and accept one another in love.  Does that mean we make habitual and indulgent sin acceptable, the answer is absolutely not.  But we accept on another because all of us are simply part of the body of Christ by God’s grace.

One of the major reasons that contention and strife exist in the body of Christ is because of pride and arrogance.  People get their eyes focused on themselves and allow pride to build within them.  They forget about God’s grace and where God has brought them from.  Let us this day simply focus upon Jesus allow Him to have His way in our lives.
