The word "accept" comes with many meanings. I would like to list a few....
- to receive willingly
- to be able or designed to take or hold ( I like this one personally)
- to give admittance or approval to
- to endure without protest or reaction (Another good one)
- to regard as proper, normal, or inevitable
- to recognize as true
And the list goes on....
As the creation of a matchless and wonderful God, there are some things I would like to encourage us all to accept:
We are sons of a living God
We are fearfully and wonderfully made
We are bought and paid for by the precious blood of Jesus
We are victorious in every situation and circumstance we face
We are loved! (Hallelujah)
We are not subject to death, but to life everlasting
We have a hope and a peace that cannot be destroyed or diminished
We are forgiven (Whew)
In the end, WE WIN!!
These professions are not even a drop in the bucket in comparison to the many blessings and promises our Father has for us and provides on a daily basis! We are a blessed people and we cannot lose with Jesus Christ!
