Bible verses about "acceptance" | JPS_ASV_Byz

Colossians 3:12-14

12 Put on therefore, as God's elect, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, longsuffering, 13 forbearing one another, and forgiving each other, if any man have a complaint against any, even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye: 14 and above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness.

1 Timothy 5:8

8 But if any provideth not for his own, and specially his own household, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever.

Matthew 6:25-32

25 Therefore I say unto you, be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, and what ye shall drink, nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than the food, and the body than the raiment? 26 Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not ye of much more value then they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit unto the measure of his life? 28 And why are ye anxious concerning raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow, they toil not, neither do they spin; 29 yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God doth so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Be not therefore anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 For after all these things do the Gentiles seek, for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

John 6:37

37 All that which the Father giveth me shall come unto me, and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Matthew 7:1-29

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye measure, it shall be measured unto you. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me cast out the mote out of thine eye, and lo, the beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. 6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before the swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and rend you. 7 Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you; 8 for every one that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, who, if his son ask a loaf, will give him a stone, 10 or if he shall ask for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? 12 All things therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, even so do ye also unto them; for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many are they that enter in thereby. 14 How narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few are they that find it. 15 But beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. 16 By their fruits ye shall know them. Do men gather a grape cluster of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, but the corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy by thy name, and by thy name cast out demons, and by thy name do many mighty works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Every one therefore that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock; 25 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell not; for it was founded upon the rock. 26 And every one that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand; 27 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and smote upon that house, and it fell; and great was the fall thereof. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these words, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching: 29 for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

2 John 1:10-11

10 If any one cometh unto you, and bringeth not this teaching, receive him not into your house, and give him no greeting: 11 for he that giveth him greeting partaketh in his evil works.

2 Timothy 4:1-2

1 I charge thee in the sight of God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom: 2 preach the word, be urgent in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

Romans 15:7

7 Wherefore receive ye one another, even as Christ also received you, to the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 5:11

11 but as it is, I wrote unto you not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner, with such a one no, not to eat.
