You are Loved, Valued and Accepted.

To make people feel UNLOVED, UNVALUED, and UNACCEPTED while claiming to be a believer in Christ is IRONIC because Christ LOVES people...Christ VALUES people...and Christ ACCEPTS people.

Even though God's love for people, the value He puts on people and the acceptance He has for people is beyond our ability to fully understand, it is not beyond our ability to experience and enjoy.

As a believer, do we cause people to feel the warmth of God's love, the value God places on them and the depth of His acceptance of them? Or, are you continually BUTTING the qualities of God with BUTS? Our BUTS will cause people not to feel the warmth of His love through them, the enormity of the value He has for them nor the greatness of His acceptance of them, therefore, we are failing in sharing God's Grace with them!

When we But God's qualities we turn the air conditioning on top high and freeze people from experiencing God's love for them, His value on them and acceptance of them.

Nonbelievers and believer alike, feel unloved, unvalued and unaccepted today because to many people who claim to be followers of Christ lack a thorough understanding of the REAL GRACE of God brought about by the death and resurrection of Christ.

The message people hear from the pulpits that God hates people, God is displeased with people, God turns away from people when they sin, causes people to run and hide from God feeling less loved, less valued and less accepted when they do wrong instead of running to His loving outstretched arms to feel the warmth of His love and forgiveness. 

Paul informed us in Romans 8:38-39: "For I am persuaded that neither death, nor live, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

What too many believers lack today is an understanding of the depth, length, height and width of the grace of God. Paul truly had a revelation of the grace of God like no other. He wrote in Romans 11:33-36: "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counselor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory forever."

We have been taught much about what it means to be a child of God. We have learned much about how it is by the blood of Christ that we come to God and how without His shed blood no man could call himself anything but a stranger to God as the gentiles were once strangers to covenant and promise which was made to Israel. Scripture tells us just how accepted people are, but do they really know in their hearts what it really means to be accepted by God? Do they really understand all that is contained in "The Grace of God"? Or has our BUTTING caused them not to experience fully His AMAZING GRACE?

If people live their lives seeking to be accepted by God, when they sin or come short of what the know God wants us to be, there is only one way we can feel and that is unaccepted. The reason why many people feel spiritually dissatisfied is because they are never able to become all they know God wants them to be so they feel unloved, unvalued and unaccepted so what is the use to keep trying. 

Because of the  GRACE of Jesus Christ YOU are completely LOVED, VALUED and ACCEPTED by God, not because of your trying...but because of Christ's doing.
