This is the day after Good Friday and the day before Easter where Christians celebrate the saddest however the most beautiful days of our lives.
Jesus Christ was rejected by mankind and by his father God to be crucified on the cross for our sins. No one who has sinned can enter into heaven and have a relationship with God but Jesus took our spot so we can have relationship with God. We just believe we won’t be rejected by our Heavenly Father.
We all know what rejection feels like. It is not a good thing at all. We have been rejected by family, friends and peers. The hardest rejection is by those closest to us and we feel ashamed. Often we can feel it was our fault for the rejection. In some cases it is true however those who reject us have been rejected as well. We need to realize that everyone has been rejected at one time or another. It is not an easy thing to deal with. We do things sometimes so we don’t get rejected. We all have stories to when it comes to rejection. When I was in junior high I used to fall asleep weeping feeling that no one cared for how I felt. No one understood what I had gone through. There are cases where depression is a medical condition however it can be because of rejection as well. Going into depression sends you into a dark place and rejection feels even worse.
We must acknowledge that we have been rejected. We may still deal with issues concerning rejection even though it may have a long time ago. We do have hope because on Easter Jesus Christ was resurrected and had a new birth. We can have a new birth as well even though we may have not died. Today forgive those who have rejected you and don’t feel guilty any longer for those you have rejected. That is the thing not only have we been rejected we have rejected others as well.
Look to Jesus Christ the son of God to forgive you of your sins and turn your life over to him. He will not reject you instead he will love you. Most likely you will be rejected by people in the future however he will not at all. This is what Easter is all about. Amen!
