The Toughest One-Another
Series: SHOW OTHERS HOW MUCH THEY MATTER
Acceptance. If we're honest, we all need it. We need to be seen, wanted, and included as part of the group. To our astonishment, God Himself, through Christ, has fully accepted us. Even when we deserved rejection, Christ paid for our sin, bore our exile, and brought us home. And now, He instructs us to accept one another as we have been accepted by Him. While that sounds marvelous, there is a catch. Acceptance requires something of us, and many of us are too nervous to step out into it. This week, we'll look at both the gift and the cost of acceptance, and find without the cost, we can never have the gift.
