Have you ever been rejected? Maybe turned down when applying for a new job? Or, turned down when you asked that sweet young girl out on a date, or by a boy you thought was the dreamiest, or in today’s language “cool” or perhaps other descriptions of which I am not cool enough to know about?
Rejections come to us occasionally in our lifetimes. They may be life changing rejections. They may be rejections which lead us on a totally different path that we wanted to go, or expected to experience.
The way we handle those rejections makes a huge difference in whether they are life changing for our benefit, or life changing for destruction.
There is one relationship which no one has any fear or expectation of rejection. There is One who will receive ALL; One who will turn no one away.
That One, of course, is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Look at what He says to us in about His acceptance of us in John 6:37: “ALL that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and whoever comes to Me I will never cast out.”
