Salvation Bible Basics
But those who have a relationship with God are called accepted in Ephesians 1:6. ‘To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.’ Everyone starts out life under the wrath of God. But there are some that have moved to the column of having a relationship with God, some who are accepted in Christ. What does it mean to be accepted? It means to be welcomed, to be wanted.
That is what God offers. He offers to you the opportunity to be accepted. How do you get accepted? Is it dependent upon something you do? Can you be kind enough to a person until it makes you accepted? No. Acceptance is something the other person has to offer to you. Acceptance is what God offers to you, through Jesus Christ.
