Have you ever been rejected? Rejection from that dream university that you worked so hard for? Or maybe the man or woman that you thought would be yours forever. Rejection from your family. Rejection can hurt so bad, but it can be so good. Let me explain…Jesus was rejected.
“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone…”
Sometimes, you being rejected has nothing to do with you but everything to do with the people rejecting you. They reject you because they cannot accommodate your greatness. They reject you because they can’t accommodate where God is taking you! They rejected Jesus as a common stone, because that was not His portion, that wasn’t His calling, He was made to be the chief cornerstone, greater than a normal stone and they just couldn’t handle that. You are like that in this world. Jesus was rejected and if we are called to look like Him and act like Him, then it is inevitable that we too will be rejected. So be encouraged, whenever you face rejection, know that it is because you are too great for the little space that they want to fit you into. You were not made to ‘fit in’, you were made to stand out and shine.
