POINTS TO PONDER  The word “ACCEPT,” in its various tenses, etc., is found in  the K.J.T. only 87 Times, 60 in the O.T. and 27 in the N.T.  and none even imply that MAN is to Accept God or Christ.  Psalms 19:14; Ezek. 20:40-41; 2nd Cor. 8:12.
Now to  “rightly divide” notice: *God Accepts Jesus Christ’s ONE  Perfect Offering; *Man Accepts Passively in New Birth;  *Man accepts Actively in Fellowship & Friendship. Finally,  we clearly find that God is who does the accepting, even  in the Beloved Christ – Eph. 1:6.
