He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. - Isaiah 53:3

What picture do you get in your mind when you think of God? Austere, holy, set apart, full of kingly authority? How did Jesus the very Son of God come into the world? He came as a lowly baby, meek, quiet, weak, vulnerable. And this Son of God choose the way of suffering. A king he indeed was, but a suffering king he choose to be. Sorrow, rejection, grief, despised were the results of him following the voice of his Heavenly Father. Rejection and being despised are awful feelings, when someone wants to reject you in the furthest way they despise you. Men despised the very person of God, they wished he never existed, that he never said any words. They hated him and mocked him. Yet our Lord simply did good to all men and was the light of the world.

It will be the same for his Disciples those who follow him know we will be rejected at times and dejected. We must never react or show feelings of hate or hurt back to the people that despise us. Jesus said we must prepare for this ahead of time and he would give us the joy and words to share. We can be a great light to lost men who in ignorance treat us badly because we shine Jesus to them. Let us walk meekly, humbly and lowly as our Master and not take it personal when we are rejected by this world. Pray for those who hurt you and speak many hurtful words for them they will see the love of the Heavenly Father in you and it will melt their hard hearts.
