In our culture today, we as human beings try to be accepted by everyone.

The people living in the world, other Christians, and the idols we have in

our lives. We should be seeking the God that had already accepted us and

all of our flaws. God loves us beyond measures, and He showed that by

sending His Son to die on the cross for our sins.

We cannot focus on the attention and amount of acceptance we get from

what the world offers because it will never compare to God. 1 Peter 5:8

says “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a

roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” The enemy wants you to focus

on conforming and fitting in so you are distracted on what God is trying to

do in and through you.

The other thing is the devil wants to make you feel less than and that your

not good enough. But God says you are enough. He loves you more than

anything and anyone can. 1 Peter 2:4 says “As you come to him, the Living

Stone— rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—“.

God chose and will always choose you. We have nothing to prove to God

to gain acceptance because He says to come as we are. The world has

standards and expectations, but God just wants our attention and affection.

Why should we give our time and attention to people and things that are

only temporary? God is everlasting. We need to choose to pursue God

instead of gaining acceptance from the world.
