Can you handle rejection?

“He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” John 1:11

Would you spend your last night with someone who as you know will betray you the next day? Yeshua did it. He is faithful even when we are not! There is no better way to grow in love than to be mistreated. Look at Yeshua on the cross – He asked the Father to forgive those who tore the flesh from His body and tore the nails from His hands.

Dealing with rejection proves whether you are truly dead to yourself. It is impossible to hurt a dead person! On the other hand, to be rejected without being wrong about anyone or anything is one of the greatest proofs of spiritual maturity. It means to be like Yeshua!

In the Old Testament, a priest was removed from service if he had an unhealed wound or some other defect (see Leviticus 21: 17-20). Why? Because that wound made him sensitive. He couldn’t let others near him because they might scratch his wounds and make them bleed again. This would have reflected in his speech and kept him from acting in a way that pleased God.

Have you happened to be around a “wounded” preacher? He preaches from his broken places and details all the depths of his struggles.

Yahweh has the solution: “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith Jehovah…” (Jer 30: 17).

Yahweh wants to heal you, so that He can reach others through you and heal them too.

Will you let Him do it?
