    Contributed by Richard White on May 19, 2007
    based on 9 ratings
     | 3,256 views

    part 2 of series Facing Your Giants, the credit for the idea comes from Max Lucado’s book by the same title. This deals with how God uses those whom we see as unusable. David was the runt of the litter, God used him for great things.

    Rejection: 1972 was a bittersweet year for me. I graduated from High School (YAY), I had a good part in the school musical (YAY). I remember these times with great fondness, there were also the bad times. I had tried out for a semi-pro theatre group, I thought I had a great audition and ...read more

  • The King Of Rejection

    Contributed by Gordan Runyan on Aug 23, 2002

     | 4,621 views

    With a nod to John Knox, this is about tyranny; what it is, why it is, how we escape it (including the tyranny of sin).

    Webster’s dictionary defines “tyranny” as arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power. We don’t use the word “tyranny” a lot in our own day. We don’t routinely hear people in positions over us referred to as tyrants. (They may in fact be tyrants, but we don’t use the word.) But the word ...read more

    God does not force Himself or His will upon mankind, we either receive God’s grace or we reject Him. This message deals with the benefits or receiving God’s promises.

    (John 1:11&12) "He came unto His own, and they received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." (1) Our Text says, "But as many as received Him." Not those that had heard of Him, or even those who had seen ...read more

    In some form or fashion we all have experienced rejection and felt the effects that it brings with it and will continue to feel them for many years to come. Rejection is a part of life that affects each of us at some point and it’s not limited to only on

    The Pitfalls of Rejection 1st Peter 3:14 Whither it was not being picked for the kickball game by the kids in the neighborhood, not making the football team, or the cheerleading squad, not going to the prom with the person you knew you would, or getting into the college you wanted, not ...read more

    If Jephthah sacrificed his daughter... how did he end up in Hebrews 11 as one of the heroes of the faith? And if he didn't, why doesn't God tell us that?

    OPEN: How many of you have ever been rejected? Me too. Rejection can be hard experience for anyone, but it’s surprising to find that people we would consider famous have often been scorned by others. • For example, have you ever heard of Harrison Ford? What movies has he been in? ...read more

  • The Rejection Of The Word Series

    Contributed by Dennis Davidson on Jun 11, 2012
    based on 23 ratings
     | 5,056 views

    The argument turns from how to be saved to why Israel wasn't saved with these verses. Like so many people today the Jews had rejected God's plan to save the world, they had rejected Jesus as the Messiah basically because they had rejected God's Word.

    ROMANS 10: 17-21 THE REJECTION OF THE WORD We have just been advised in this passage dear friends that if you are seeking salvation you must be a hearer of the Word. We are to keep in mind that it is the Word of God that we need to hear, because the word of man cannot save you. It may ...read more

    In the story of Satan in the Garden we see the beginning of Relativistic Morality and the absurdity it now has reaped upon our society

    OPEN: A famous preacher once joked from the pulpit: “In English they teach us that 2 negatives make a positive statement (i.e = "there’s no way I’m not going to go"). So the way I figure it, if I know I’m lying, and God knows I’m lying – I gotta be telling the truth.” APPLY: That strikes us as ...read more

    Scripture Reading: “Matthew 21:33-46 Message: “He was Rejected” Text: “He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering” (Isaiah 53:3). What is rejection? The American Heritage Dictionary defines the word reject as follows: to refuse to accept, ...read more

  • Rejecting The Cornerstone

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Apr 1, 2007
    based on 6 ratings
     | 2,802 views

    The cornerstone in biblical times was the first and most important stone laid in the foundation or the top and key supporting stone in an arch. In either case, it was the most important part of the structure.

    Additional texts: Isaiah 43:16-21; Psalm 126; Philippians 3:8-14 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

  • The Rejection Test

    based on 6 ratings
     | 1,288 views

    It is completely unnatural, painful and difficult to risk friendships when you are truly about God’s work, but Jesus never flinched in His pursuit of God’s will - in the end you will discover those who are there for the show and those who show Christ-like

    As I was reading in I Peter 4:1-19 from The Message I came across some passages that appear to be very timely: Since Jesus went through everything you’re going through and more, learn to think like him. Think of your sufferings as a weaning from that old sinful habit of always expecting to get ...read more

  • Acceptance And Rejection

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Dec 25, 2007
    based on 7 ratings
     | 4,311 views

    We know what both acceptance and rejection feel like. What must God feel at our rejection of Him? In Jesus He turns around our rejection into His acceptance of us. We can accept our acceptance.

    “He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him.” Do you have experience with both acceptance and rejection? I imagine you do. No one is so fortunate as to have had everything he wants, and so we have all experienced rejection. And no one is so hard-up that she has been ...read more
