Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

REJECTED

Isaiah 53:3 (NLT)
   He was despised and rejected


John 1:10-11 (NLT)
   He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. 11 He came to his own people, and even they rejected him.

Lord Jesus, you understand what it means to be rejected. You experienced it, overcame it and used it for divine purposes.

Luke 9:22 (NLT)
     “The Son of Man must suffer many terrible things,” he said. “He will be rejected ……….. He will be killed, but on the third day he will be raised from the dead.”

Father I am so grateful that rejection doesn’t determine the outcome of anything though it may be a means to accomplish a greater purpose. The rejection of Jesus resulted in the great salvation we have through faith in him. Who could have thought that the cross would become the crucible through which redemption would come?

Ephesians 1:7 (NIV)
   In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins………

Colossians 1:20 (GW)
    …..He did this by making peace through Christ's blood sacrificed on the cross.

Father what a story line: Rejected, Killed, Raised!

Amen
