The Bible also talks of God as the King. And, in this aspect,rejection of the King is a political crime with consequences of eternal banishment of anyone, even if he were a prince, whohas rebelled against the laws of the Kingdom. So, Biblicalwarnings are serious. The Kingdom of God is not a democracywhere the leader is elected by majority of votes; it is a realitythat is eternal and must be accepted as such. Rejecting God islike rejecting oxygen and trying to breathe without it, likerejecting the ground beneath our feet and trying to still begrounded on it. It is a self-contradictory experience. Ourrejection of God doesn’t affect God; it affects us.In closing, let me underscore a few Jesus Principles withregards to dealing with rejection:1.
Do not let your feelings of rejection overpower youracceptance before God. He has not rejected you, and that isthe eternal fact. He created you for a purpose and the purposeis more real than what people feel, think, do, or say. Even Jesusfelt forsaken on the cross when He cried "My God My God whyhave You forsaken Me!" But, at the end, He knew He couldsubmit His spirit into the Father's hands, because He wasacceptable before the Father though the world had rejectedHim.2.
If you have been rejected by someone you deeply loved,remember that this is not a surprise to God though it may looka shock to you. Therefore, prepare not to be offended; and if you have been, destroy the feelings by faith in God's controlover your life. Love them still whether they betray, forsake, ordeny; because, the pursuit of love will save someone who hada heart of love beneath the mask of inhibition (Matthew 26:23,49, 50; John 21:17).3.
Do not commit yourself to any human because they seem to beaccepting you. Human acceptance is usually selfish in nature(John 2:24)
