I was rejected the other day…

How many times have you heard a Christian brother or sister tell you that when you share your faith with someone and they reject it, they are not rejecting you.  They are rejecting Jesus.  It is reasoned out this way so you don’t feel bad about yourself.  The idea that you are not rejected seems contrary to what is taught by Jesus.  It appears you, Jesus and God are being rejected.

 “The one who listens to you, listens to me. The one who rejects you, rejects me. And rejecting me is the same as rejecting God, who sent me.”~Jesus

 So when you feel the pain of rejection, accept it.  Embrace it.  Know that Jesus and God suffer with you in the pain.  Be encouraged by it.  Know that God is real in your life and you are discovering the pain found in obedience.  God loves you and will meet you in your darkest hours.  For in the darkness, His light illuminates the world through you.

Consider your pain a badge of honor.  Wear it proudly.  God bless and “Go.  Take on the Day!”~Dr.Laura

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. You will eventually get so rejected that other believers will reject you also.

    They see the rejection on you, and assume you have done something wrong.

    It did not feel like a badge of honor, but dishonor.

    I used to think that “Marianne is ok” was a secret between God and myself.

    But you need to get this deep, before you hit water for your “well.”

  2. Thank you Marianne. It seems most prophets pay dearly here on earth, but there heavenly rewards are great! God bless. Keep running the race to win. God is still alive and well.

    Have you looked into the idea of starting a home church. Reference the organic or simple church movement?
