Have You Ever Been Rejected?

Have You Ever Been Rejected? By Keith Cook

"My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins." James 5:19, 20

News Event:  On The Go Ministries is hosting Northpoint Christian School this week as their students serve in our Middle Tennessee Outreach in Nashville, Tennessee. Please pray for each student as they serve, and for each person the team will minister to that they might be drawn closer to Jesus Christ.

In trying to share your faith, there are many things that you can do. One of the things that the devil wants you to do is to get you afraid and get you to live by fear. The number one fear of sharing your faith that the devil wants you to cling to is the fear of rejection. I will never forget when I was younger, my youth director took me down to the "hot spot" and then kicked me out of the van and told me, "Don't come back until you have shared your faith with someone." I remember timidly walking from car to car and window to window, knocking on the windows. People would roll down their windows and look at me as if I were crazy or expecting the food they had just ordered.

I soon began to realize that what I was really afraid of was the idea of being rejected. No one likes being rejected, but the truth is this, if you are more afraid of being rejected than the truth of where your friend is going to spend eternity, then something is wrong in your life.

We all need to rise up and not be ashamed of sharing our faith. We do not need to be ashamed of taking a risk, because it is risky to go out and tell others about Christ. Do not be concerned about being rejected, but where they will spend eternity. Share the love of Jesus with someone today. Anytime you are afraid, that is the time to put all of your faith, hope, and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. Give Him all of your needs and trust Him today with all that you have. Jesus loves you so much and He loves the whole world. Go out and share the love of Christ.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that God will enable you to Rise Up,  Unashamed of the Gospel of Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Middle Tennessee Outreach is scheduled for April 13-16, 2011. Pray for the team as they travel to Nashville today. Pray that God will prepare their hearts, eyes, and ears to serve Him this week.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to
