If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin awaits at your door. It desires to have you, but you must master it.
( Genesis 4:7 )
consider and hold as true
Reach over and around all barriers to contact others with the Love of God and the Grace of Jesus
( John 20:21-23 )
an intense feeling of deep affection
a great interest and pleasure in something
a person or thing that one loves
like very much, showing love or great care
Most Christians would like to be more loving, our intentions are great, our follow through is lacking. The real issue is power, we’re aware of our weakness ~ the temporal and human limits of our will, strength and courage to love others like Jesus loves us. But God promises us his power to do what he has called us to do. Find that power and turn it loose in your life.
If you Love someone, you must accept everything about them, even their faults or weaknesses just as we are Loved & Accepted by our Lord Jesus.
Why would we deprive the soul of divine grace?, people you love most simply need to know how precious they are to you. If you understand that God has accepted you with all your weaknesses and imperfections, we need to realize that we are imitating God, when we grant the gift of Love and Acceptance to others.
