In our culture, people believe in fair trade. It is not easy for us to know the true meaning of being accepted. Some of us spend our whole life to earn acceptance from significant others. But the Bible tells us that true acceptance cannot be earned; it is granted. “Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. – Romans 3:27” When we accept Jesus’ forgiveness and let Him be the Lord of our life, He accepts us in turn. Coincidently, experience let me know that people who have acquired true acceptance tend to accept the challenge as a means to grow.
