Bible Topics: Desire for acceptance

Definition: In the social sense, to be accepted is to be received by others in a positive way; to be considered worthy of friendship and respect.

1. The Lord understands our need to feel accepted.

2. Our desire for acceptance, like so many of our other needs, is one that the Lord Himself wants to be the first to meet.

3. Acceptance is a two-way street: if we want others to accept us, we also need to express to others that we love and accept them.

4. We must not let our desire to be accepted by others supersede our desire to please the Lord.

5. If we put God first, He will see to it that we are accepted by those He wants us to be close to.

6. Acceptance among Christians should be based on their mutual faith and love for the Lord.

7. We can't expect, nor should we desire, to be accepted by the world and the wrong sort of people.
