Draw Near

see through fish“Accept one another as Christ accepts you.” (Romans 15:7) How does Jesus accept us? He sees right through us you can this fish.
We have no idea how much damaged the sin nature caused before it was replaced with Christ’s. Jesus does. We have no clue as to all the lies that snuck in before we started filtering life through God’s Word. Jesus does. We don’t even understand all the sinning we’ve done or are currently doing! Jesus does. There is nothing hidden in the nooks and crannies of our hearts or brains that He can’t see.
Despite all this, He accepts us, which means He draws us to Himself in friendship knowing all that He knows about us. Let that sink in. He knows all the stuff we can’t or don’t even know exists within us and yet still wants us close to Him.
His arms are open wide for us to come near to Him. Everything you need in life is found in Christ. It’s not Him who keeps us at arms length. Draw near to Jesus and let Him meet your needs at even the deepest levels.
