How many of us would spend our last night with someone if we knew they were going to betray us the next day? Jesus did. He was faithful when they were not. There’s no greater opportunity for us to grow in Christian love than when you are rejected and abused. Jesus asked the Father to forgive those who crucified Him – Amazing!
How we handle rejection reveals whether you have died to self and to the world. Being rejected without being offended is one of the greatest demonstrations of spiritual maturity, being Christ like.
In the old testament a priest was not allowed to minister if he had scabs (Lev. 21:20). A scab is an unhealed wound. When you have unhealed spiritual wounds, you can not function the way God wants you to & it will show in the way you speak. We need to be healed! For it’s only when we pass the rejection test that we can reach out in love and help make others whole.
