We all have rejected Him


In the first chapter of John (John 1:9-11) we see a rather telling statement of the world’s treatment of Christ;

That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.  He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.

We can mock and say “I wouldn’t have done that to Christ if I was alive back then”. We can act all holy and righteous when it comes to the treatment that Jesus received back when He walked in Israel 2000 years ago, but in reality, we have no right to condemn them for their actions.

You see, every time we sin, we in our hearts reject Christ in some way. Every time we say no His leading we reject Him. But relax He does not throw us away for our rejection, in fact He continues to pursue us. He seeks us out, wanting to engage with us. He gives us more opportunities to say YES to him.

So no matter how many times you have rejected Him, you will have another chance right up to your dying breath. So say Yes to Jesus!
