How to Succeed: Remember that God Accepts You As You Are!
You may be rejected by others, but you shall always be accepted by God. Being accepted by God means that you do not have to jump through barrels or hoops to be accepted by anyone. Ep. 1:6, “God has made us welcome in the everlasting love. He bears towards the son [Jesus].” God accepts you as you are with your flaws and all.
Here are three things to know about God’s acceptance of you:
- God’s acceptance does not equal his approval. God can accept you, but He won’t approve of your sin. God’s acceptance of us is an excellent motivator to give up our sins and make it our mission to please God.
- God’s acceptance is unconditional. God’s love and acceptance of you has no strings attached. We cannot fathom the love that God has for each of us.
- God’s acceptance is because of His Son, Jesus Christ. Ep 1:6, “He made us accepted in the Beloved [Jesus Christ].” As long as God accepts Jesus, and you trust in Jesus, you’re accepted as well.
Remember God loves you as you are, and you do not need the approval of anyone else to know that. Please understand that the love of God and Jesus Christ is all that you need to make it in life.
