Accept / Acceptable
To receive, to take unto one self, to consent, to agree, to be valid and correct.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer. / Accept, I pray, the freewill offering of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me your judgments. / To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. / For on My holy mountain, on the mountain height of Israel, says the LORD GOD … there I will accept them and there I will require your offerings and the first fruits of your sacrifice, together with all your holy things. I will accept your sweet aroma when I bring you out from the people and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; … / Thus says the LORD: In an acceptable time I have heard you; I will preserve You and give You as a covenant to the people, to restore the earth, to cause them to inherit the desolate heritages; / I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. / Nevertheless, … because of the grace given to me by God, that I might be a minister to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. / Indeed I have all and abound, I am full, … a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. / For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. / Coming to Him as a to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

As a disciple we need to accept our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, plus we need to be willing to accept the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives. To accept, is to take on the responsibility of what you have been given charge over; to accept is also to agree to, to commit to doing it.
Dear Lord, I thank you that you have accepted me as a child of God into your family and into your Kingdom. Lord I pray that my life will be acceptable in your sight and as I lay down my life and will each day to you that you will fill me with your love, power and strength. Lord I desire to be a true servant and cupbearer for you out to a lost world. Lord as you have given to me and accepted me into your beloved, may I accept others around me who are part of your bride the church.
