Welcome and receive [to you hearts] one another, then, even as Christ has welcomed and received you, for the glory of God. (Romans 15:7 AMP)
Do you realize how much God loves you? You were a sinner, serving and worshipping false gods. You thought you were free. You did what you thought was right. You enjoyed the pleasure of the world – but you were deceived. You were actually a slave of Satan. Christ delivered you from that wretched life. You were forgiven of your sins and given true freedom. He bought you with His precious blood and you now enjoy the blessing that lasts forever. You are not alone. There are others that Christ welcomed to Himself. You cannot choose who you want to be with in His Church. It is God’s prerogative. Thus, you have to regard everyone the same way Christ regarded you. We are related by the precious, sinless blood of Christ. This relationship will last until forever. We have to forgive each other, embrace each other warmly, and help each other sincerely. If you love God, love those whom He loves. He loves you and He loves your brother. Keep your love burning towards one another. Honor our Abba Father by loving each other.
