Rejection, though undeniably painful, does not have to hold you back from accomplishing what God wants you to do. The people of Jesus's hometown denied that He was the Messiah, and many of the ones who followed Him actually rejected Him. Just as Jesus' rejection was part of God's plan for His Son, so was Jesus' continued ministry. Accepting earthly rejection and knowing full well that the Father would turn away from Him at Calvary, Jesus went on to cure the sick, cast out demons, and preach the good news to the masses.

If rejection has become a hindrance to the work God has given you to do, don't give up. Remember that Jesus understands, and those who come to Him will always be accepted by Him (John 6:379).
