Accept One AnotherLoving like Jesus means being genuine and sincere in our actions that place God first and others above ourselves.  Because of this truth, the New Testament writers give instructions on how to interact with, care for, uplift, accept, and be in unity with “one another” at least 59 different times.

In the weeks leading up to Easter, we will explore some of these “One Another” commands so that we know practical steps to live and love like Jesus.

In this message, Pastor Scott discusses how and why we need to “Accept One Another” based upon these words from the Apostle Paul found in Romans chapter 15, verse 9 which says: “Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.”
