Therefore, [continue to] accept and welcome one another, just as Christ has accepted and welcomed us to the glory of [our great] God (Romans 15:7 AMP).
Why can’t the Church celebrate individuality? Look at the different personalities of the 12 disciples. Simeon was a zealot, Matthew a tax-collector. They got into squabbles, and Jesus told them to work it.
Jesus’ disciples said crazy things—not the right things. They argued about who was the greatest among them. Jesus was so patient.
We are called to accept others the same why Christ accepted us.
There are many challenges in a diverse church, and yet, that is who He purposed us to become. Working together, we exemplify the Godhead. The son does only what the Father tells him. The Holy Spirit only says what he hears the Father say. They work in unity. Jesus said, if you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father.
The unity of the Godhead becomes the basis of what we do with and for one another. Jesus has a heart for people and serving has to flow out of the heart. People can be frustrating, but the Kingdom of God is built on His desire to accept the whole world. Jesus has the ability to love people where they are at. He accepts them as they are and sees them through. We are called to follow His example in our relationships with others.
 John 14:9
