Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

I hate racism and exclusivity. But my loathing does not match God's revulsion at these things. On the other hand, we can anticipate the choir of heaven (see Revelation 7:9ff.) if we will accept one another in Jesus and not let race, language, culture, or suspicion keep us from loving each other as we have already been loved by the Savior.

My Prayer...

Holy and Righteous Father, I pray that we will let your Spirit and your grace help us tear down any wall that divides your people based on race or culture or privilege. Teach us, teach me, to love all peoples in the way you do. In the name of Jesus, who died for all people everywhere, I pray. Amen.
