Agree to Disagree


Just because I don't accept what you are doing

doesn't mean I don't accept you.

Just because I don't accept what you are doing

doesn't mean that I am judging you.

Just because I don't accept what you are doing

doesn't mean that I think less of you

Because

I love you~

I always have

I always will

I always do

because

I am God and I am Love

and

My love isn't based on

My accepting your

choices

that are the opposite of the

choices that I desire you to make.

Agreeing to Disagree

I think God created that statement

because of

His Grace.

Let's go back to the Garden

the perfect Garden

and

Put Me in

the

Do not touch that apple tree story

I repeat

Do not touch that apple tree

But...

they touched

because of

Free will

Did God accept their choice?

Not at all

as there was major consequences to

their apple eating food fest~

For the wages of sin is death...Romans 6:23.

Did that change God's love for them?

Not at all

because

Love wouldn't have

set in motion

a plan

to restore what was lost~

but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

God's Love Remains

even when

He doesn't approve of our choices

because He

Agrees to Disagree

with

Love~

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Because He

Agrees to Disagree

with

Grace

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

Because He

Agrees to Disagree

with

Patience

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Because

His Love is

unconditional

His love is

patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres....

Because His

Love never fails. I Corinthians 13:4-8

But does that mean that I just keeping

eating from the

Do not touch apple tree?

Not at all...

Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?

By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Romans 6:1-2

And because

God is Love

He loves the

one who is eating from the

Do not eat that apple tree

beyond what you can ever imagine

even though

He doesn't approve of the

apple eating.

Wow..

Can I

Can you

Agree to Disagree

with

LOVE

with

GRACE

with

Patience

because

He does?

So

Just because I don' accept what you are doing

doesn't mean I don't accept you.

Just because I don't accept what you are doing

Doesn't mean that I am judging you.

Just because I don't accept what you are doing

Doesn't mean that I think less of you

Because

I Love you.
