The In Crowd

16 Sep

The In Crowd…

In 1965, the lyrics of a hit song talked about, “I’m in with the ‘In’-Crowd.” Most high schools or junior high schools have an “In Crowd,” a group of people who are considered favored or popular. Of course, it’s the group almost everyone else wants to be in.

Long past high school, many spend their entire lives trying to get others to accept them – even many believers. For many believers, the reason they don’t share the Gospel with others is fear of rejection. But this way of thinking is incorrect. If you’re born again, you don’t need anyone’s acceptance anymore and you don’t need to fear anyone’s rejection. If you’re born again, you’re now in God’s “In-Crowd.” You’re the one who’s accepted.

Your part is to get the lost accepted into the kingdom and not worry about who accepts or rejects you because you’re already a beloved child of God.

Your life should no longer focus on getting acceptance but giving acceptance. So go out to those who are outside the kingdom and bring them in – because you already are – you’re in!

All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. John 6:37

Today, don’t spend any time thinking of others accepting you – You’re accepted. But work on accepting them into the kingdom!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
