Accept ourselves and others while pursuing maturity together. God accepts us as we are, but that doesn’t mean He wants us to stay as we are. Instead, we are to become like Jesus.
“As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said: ‘I am holy, you be holy’.” 1 Peter 1.14-16
