Rejection Proof – Good News for November 2

2 11 2009

John 6:37-40

Jesus said to the crowds: “Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me, because I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me. And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day.”

The Daily Path: Have you ever seen a sign posted in an establishment that reads, “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone“? I’ve never seen the sign posted at the entrance to a church, although one could argue that it’s a policy for some. I’ve never seen these words hanging in anyone’s home, yet clearly that is the case.

Perhaps if we were to see Jesus on a street corner in Manhattan, San Francisco, or even Boyceville, Wisconsin, he’d be waving one of those signs designed to get our attention at an intersection. It would read: I will not reject anyone who comes to me

My Horn of Plenty: See what love the Father has bestowed on us (John 3:1) – As we enter the “holiday season” and prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord, please join me in a daily reflection on the abundance God has provided in our lives.

Lord, you have provided me with a companion on the journey who’s willing to share the burden with only love in her heart.
