Do We Accept Jesus In Our Life
The Word says, "Confess Jesus as Lord and believe God raised Him from the dead and thou shalt be saved." Jesus drew all men unto Himself when He was lifted up. That truth is operational in bringing grace and faith to the heart of man to receive the truth that we are accepted in the Beloved. We could never accept Jesus except that we were accepted first. That took place in the death where reconciliation was exacted and in the resurrection where the opportunity to be saved was open to all.

** Jesus did not accept the wealthy ruler. **
Yes, He did.
Jesus even especially invited the RYR to follow Him--but the RYR didn't accept the invitation.

Both Testaments tell us that, Whosoever will Call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved: Joel 2:32; Zechariah 13:9; Romans 10:9-13. And by asking him into our lives, God will send the Spirit of Christ into our hearts, crying Papa, Father: Galatians 4:6.

Life is in Christ, Without Him we only exist.
He draws us and calls us.
He influences us to yield and empowers us to follow.

Jesus did not accept the wealthy ruler. And whrn He told people they would have to eat His flesh and Drink His blood for eternal life only the 12 remained. Jesus does have criteria for eternal life.

Jesus accepts and loves us unconditionally. He loves us just as we are, although He does not want us to stay the same, He wants to change us.

Jesus has left an open contract for our salvation. And he signed that contract with his life living blood, and spelled out the criteria for us to effectively accept ( or sign up)with him. That criteria states" whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved".If you have called you have salvation(are saved). If you have not called you are lost(not saved).

What a puzzle! The first denies the Sovereignty of God, the second implies Works.

Listen it goes both ways, accepting Jesus has to happen as much as he accepting us.
God won't go where he's not welcomed, that's why we call it a relationship with God.
