Rejected and Hurt, Now Accepted and Beloved

Linkedin Share

Have you ever been rejected by others?

I recently graduated from college and have been applying for jobs for months. All I seem to be able to receive back are rejection emails. It has been a hard and discouraging process.

Maybe you have been rejected from a job or your dream school, or you have been rejected socially because of your ethnicity or social status.

Maybe you shared your hurt or your sin with a brother or sister in Christ and found yourself being rejected by them.

Maybe you have been deeply wounded by this rejection and feel like you will never find a place where you belong.

3 Questions for Reading Your Bible Rightly

If this is you, I have good news: God will never reject you.

You will never experience the hurt of rejection when you run into the arms of the Father and tell Him about all that is in your heart. The Bible says, “draw near to God, and he will draw near to you” (James 4:8, ESV).

We are promised that if we approach God, He will not reject us, but will welcome us in. When we step closer to God, He does not take a step back or even remain still.

When we move closer to God, He moves closer to us too.

The Lord will accept you if it is your first time to come to Him or if it is your one-hundredth time. He will embrace you in His love.

He will never turn away from someone asking for forgiveness for their sins and seeking to live a life of service to Him. He will never ignore a cry for help.

The Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16, ESV).

This verse reminds us that anyone who believes in Jesus will be given eternal life. And those who believe in Jesus are brought into the family of God, fully accepted and welcomed in.

Once rejected and hurt by others, you are now accepted and beloved by God.
