Romans 15:7 says to accept one another as Christ accepted you.
Now the word accept means to admit to one’s fellowship, to receive and treat with kindness.
That’s what Jesus did for you. He received you unto himself.
He called you into fellowship and he treated you with kindness.
He forgave all of your sins.
He gave you his righteousness and made you holy.
He made you alive and sent the Holy Spirit to live in you. His acceptance of you is so binding that nothing—absolutely nothing—can separate you from his love.
This is how he accepted you.
His acceptance is the foundation for every other relationship.
Today, let me encourage you to take a fresh look at how Christ loves and accepts you.
It will help you accept one another.
