The desire to be accepted in social settings, workplaces and families seems to follow us. Wherever we go or whatever we do in life, there attends within a strong desire to find acceptance. Have you ever wondered where so great passion comes from, asking why it is there? I’m convinced there is a good reason for its presence, however misguided we may apply this compass.
It Is Finished.
God sent His Son to His own to
free the many from their sin set.
The many sent Him back to God as a
sin offering to free them from their debt.
The Savior willingly took our
rightful place becoming our sin surrogate.
On the third day God raised
His Son saying, “I do so accept.”
(1 Corinthians 15:12-20)
The hope to be accepted by the Desire of the Ages, Who also created the ages is the root of all longing for acceptance. And only in Him is it rightfully applied. In Him alone can we cease our yearning for anything else.
“having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”
