Acceptance by God (His unconditional love) cannot be earned. It was His gift to us fromrepparttar moment we received Him into our heart (Ep. 1:6). It's already been given! Though, like any gift, it isn't ours until received.

However, if we want God's acceptance (approval) and divine favor (blessings) in and as a result of our service, our works must be our gift fromrepparttar 126893 heart (II Co. 10:18, Ac. 10:35) ... as God can't be impressed withoutrepparttar 126894 heart (I Sa. 16:7). by Joyce C.

We then that are strong ought to bearrepparttar 126894 infirmities ofrepparttar 126895 weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. Romans 15:1-2

Kingdom Builders know to utilizerepparttar 126896 gifts of those in your midst and to multiply that seed in as many ways as doors open, as God gifted every one to be a light for Him.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down fromrepparttar 126897 Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

Kingdom Builders know to let God berepparttar 126898 Master Builder.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saithrepparttar 126899 Lord. For asrepparttar 126900 heavens are higher thanrepparttar 126901 earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For asrepparttar 126902 rain cometh down, andrepparttar 126903 snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but waterethrepparttar 126904 earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed torepparttar 126905 sower, and bread torepparttar 126906 eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper inrepparttar 126907 thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace:repparttar 126908 mountains andrepparttar 126909 hills shall break forth before you into singing, and allrepparttar 126910 trees ofrepparttar 126911 field shall clap their hands.
