They May Have Rejected You But God Didn’t!

[Music] in the Bible there was a woman who had an issue of blood she was rejected by Society she was deemed unclean but this woman had an encounter with Jesus Christ and she was made whole in the Bible Luke chapter 17 tells us that there were ten men with leprosy and in that time lepers were outcasts they were deemed as unclean and they too were rejected by Society in fact when these men came to Jesus the Bible says they stood at a distance I imagined they were worried about being rejected even though they sought healing from the Lord but guess what Jesus didn't reject them he healed them and even though only one leper came back to say thank you all 10 of them were made whole now you may be here listening today feeling rejected well I'm here to tell you that God has not rejected you God has not abandoned you he has not turned his back on you people may reject you Society May reject you but for a moment I want you to consider this could their rejection be the very thing that's pushing you to be closer to God when people are putting you down and casting you out perhaps God has allowed that because he knows that the pain you feel will drive you to him the loneliness you feel will drive you to him and in him you will be made whole in him you will be elevated with God you will prepare a table for you in the presence of your enemies the very same people who rejected you I once heard a story told about a man who witnessed a major accident on a highway there were multiple cars involved and this man witnessed the accident happening in real time one car going into the back of another now all the while as this was happening the driver was no longer paying attention to where he was going his Focus was on the disaster happening and not on navigating his way away from the disaster and as he was distracted with all that was going on he too went into the back of a car because he wasn't paying attention now many Christians are in this world but they're distracted with what's going on around them they are distracted by this world the Bible says in Matthew 26 verse 41. keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation the spirit is willing but the body is weak the word of God tells us to watch to focus and pay attention to what's going on yes but it also says keep praying continue praying so that you would not lose your focus as Christians we are not to focus on the sickness in this world we shouldn't be focusing on the different strains and diseases out there no our focus should be on the Healer we should focus on the chief physician the one who healed anyone and everyone who had a Measure of Faith as Christians we're not to focus on the violence taking place in the world don't focus on the tragedies and disasters that are happening all around the world instead focus on the ultimate protector ensure that you abide under the shadow of the Almighty in short what I'm telling you to do is focus on Jesus focus on the Prince of Peace rather than focusing on the dread and the fear that's offered to you by the world focus on the deliverer Jesus Christ rather than the sin because ultimately focusing on the sin will not set you free what will set you free is focusing on Jesus listen if you choose to focus on the addiction that you have if you focus on that stronghold that you have or the bondage that you're under what do you think will get bigger what you focus on you magnify and what you focus on will get bigger when Peter was walking on water do you know what made him sink he took his eyes he took his Focus away from God Matthew 14 verses 28-30 says and Peter answered him and said Lord if it is you command me to come to you on the water so he said come and when Peter had come down out of the boat he walked on the water to go to Jesus but when he saw that the wind was boisterous he was afraid and beginning to sink he cried out saying Lord save me the Bible says when he saw that the wind was boisterous he was afraid when you begin to focus on everything happening around you when you begin to look at everything going on around the world you will be left in fear but should you focus on Jesus should you focus on the Prince of Peace then you will be blessed you will remain joyful and hopeful even in the midst of trouble when you come to Christ there are many things that happen Matthew 11 verse 28 says then Jesus said come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens and I will give you rest this means that in Christ there is rest it means there is freedom that can only be attained when you come to Christ freedom from worry freedom from Eternal damnation Freedom From The Snare of the devil there is freedom in the Lord when you come to Christ John 14 verse 27 says I leave with you my peace I give to you not as the world gives do I give to you let not your heart be troubled neither Let It Be Afraid this means that in Christ there is peace there is peace which is unexplainable in Jesus a sense of calmness and Tranquility that can be found in a person even when everything around them is chaotic or hostile when you come to Christ Romans 10 verse 9 to 10 says if you declare with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved for it is with your heart that you believe and are Justified and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved this means that in Jesus you have a savior who will justify you meaning that when you accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior he moves you away from a state of sin and death and by his grace and mercy he gives you the opportunity and the gift of eternal life when you come to Christ the Bible says in Romans 8 verse 1 there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit there is no condemnation in Jesus meaning when you come to him and repent and turn away from your sin you are declared not guilty you have been pardoned there is no more shame on you anymore once you are in Christ there is no disgrace no accusations from the devil will stand there is no condemnation in Jesus Christ and when you really grasp the meaning of the word condemn then you can begin to appreciate just how much goodness can be found in Jesus the Bible in Revelation 12 verse 10 says then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven now salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ have come for the accuser of our Brethren who accused them before our God day and night has been cast down the devil is referred to as the accuser of the brethren meaning that he attempts to accuse us of sin of Shame and guilt the devil's intention is to condemn us but in Christ we are acquitted of all charges and found to be not guilty we are indeed Justified when we come to Christ thank you foreign
