Pain of Rejection
Rejection is something everyone experiences:
A. We are all born in rejection.
1 Samuel 15:23; Hosea 4:6; Genesis 4:7
B. We all have experienced rejection in our lives.
C. God Himself and Jesus Christ His Son has experienced rejection as well.
1 Thessalonians 4:8; 1 Samuel 8:7; Isaiah 53:3
How Do We Respond To Rejection? Many Have Developed Defense Mechanisms.
A. Pull back.
B. Become very manipulative.
C. We are extremely easily offended.
D. Pull away before we get hurt. Never finish.
God responded to rejection very differently than we do.
Jesus taught us how to respond to those who have rejected us.
Matthew 5:43, 44; Matthew 22:37 – 39;
We can be accepted by God.
Luke 4:19; 2 Corinthians 6:2; Ephesians 1:6
