These days there is much talk about acceptance.
Turning to dictionary.com for the definition, I read … “to take or receive something offered; to agree or consent to; to respond or answer affirmatively to.”
As I sit with the definitions before me, the question comes to my mind, “What is it that we are to accept?” But perhaps the greater question is this one, “What are we to accept into our lives?
“So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls.” (James 1:21,Â NLT)
James calls us to a life of repentance ”“ a daily putting off of anything contradicting the life we are to live in Christ. The only way we will ever successfully do this is as we accept the Word of God into our souls. We must receive it, consent to let it do its work in our lives, and respond in obedience.
I hope you will join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE where we will look at removing those things from our lives so as to better accept His Word into our lives.
