REJECTED BY OUR OWN

 
Read Luke 4:29


"They got up, drove Him out of the town, and took Him to the brow of the hill

on which the town was built, in order to throw Him down the cliff. But He walked right through the crowd and went on His way." NIV


"And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong." KJV


Like Jesus beginning His ministry in His hometown of Nazareth, following the Lord's leading in your life is not easy. Many will reject you and and try to destroy your message; even those of your own town, who call themselves your friends and those who are members of your family will turn on you. But like Jesus, we can continue on our way in pursuit of seeking to be more like him and following God's will for our lives.
Heavenly Father, we stand in need of your help with continuing on our Christian walk in spite of the opposition we get from others. Help us to stay strong and faithful no matter who may try to distract us or destroy us. In Jesus' name, Amen.

This was the end part of a great story---when Jesus returned to His home town and was rejected by those who supposedly knew Him. Ha.

"A prophet without honor..."
