Mark 1 : 14 - 39, John 4: 46 -54, Luke 4: 16 - 44, Matthew 8: 14 - 25

Rejection.  Have you ever experienced rejection?  Did you feel like throwing in the towel?  Did you wonder why?  Did you want to quit?  Well, you aren't alone.  Jesus even experienced.  Really?  Where you might ask?  Well, in his boyhood home.  What?  How?  Seriously?  Yes, when he shared these words.
"The Scripture you've just heard has been fulfilled this very day.!"

What how can it be?  Isn't that Joseph the carpenter's son?  They were going to throw him off the cliff, but he passed right through the crowd and went on his way.  Imagine it.  He had already healed a little boy.  He already made more wine at the wedding, but yet the people that knew him the longest did not believe.  He was right among them and they did not see.

Jesus felt everything we have ever experienced.  He had love, He had joy, He had hate, He had the rejection, He had the hangers on, He had the believers...He had it all!  Yet, He loves us and He knows our joy, He knows our pains, He knows it ALL!

Look to Jesus for comfort!

Sweet blessings,
