Sermons about Acceptance
Don’t judge me! It’s a popular cry of our times. A plea for acceptance and an attack on those with outspoken opinions. This message looks at Romans 14 and examines the issue of what it means biblically to “accept one another”
In John 19:30, Jesus says, "It is Finished." All of us struggle with this longing to find approval from our parents, our boss, our kids, our friends, etc. We often work so hard to gain this approval and once we have it, we find its almost impossible to keep. What does this mean about gaining and keeping a holy God's approval? Listen and hear why that one phrase "It is Finished" is so important for us.
What is the reality of your fight against sin in your life? Are you as put-together as you let people believe? I didn't think so. None of us are. We need to be honest and admit that our whole lives are basically playing "catch-up" when it comes to being the people that we would like to be.
This week we looked at God's Father heart for us and learned that and His home is a place of acceptance, love, and belonging.
Matthew proves that at some point we must see ourselves as a gift from God.
“If Jesus would appear at your dinner table tonight with knowledge of everything you are and are not, total comprehension of your life story and every skeleton hidden in you closet; if he laid out the real state of your present discipleship with the hidden agenda, the mixed motives, and the dark desires buried in your psyche, you would feel his acceptance and forgiveness.”
Jesus' response to Peter's betrayal is the definitive illustration of how God ultimately responds to our sinfulness.
