What It Means To
Be Acceptable To God....
From the Scriptures Roman 5:-11
 

    "By faith we have been made
acceptable to God. And now, because
of our Lord Jesus Christ, we live at
peace with God.  Christ has also
introduced us to God's undeserved
kindness on which we take our
stand.  So we are happy, as we look
forward to sharing in the glory of God.
But that's not all!  We gladly suffer,
because we know that suffering helps
us to endure. And endurance builds
character, which gives us a hope that
will never disappoint us.  All of this
happens because God has given us
the Holy Spirit, who fills our hearts
with his love.

        Christ died for us at a time when
we were helpless and sinful.  No one
is really willing to die for an honest
person, though someone might be
willing to die for a truly good person.
But God showed how much he loved
us by having Christ die for us, even
though we were sinful.

    But there is more!  Now that God
has accepted us because Christ
sacrificed his life's blood, we will also
be kept safe from God's anger.  Even
when we were God's enemies, he
made peace with us, because his  Son
died for us.  Yet something even
greater than friendship is ours.  Now
that we are at peace with God, we
will be saved by his Son's life.

        And in addition to everything
else, we are happy because God sent
our Lord Jesus Christ to make peace
with us."
