REJECTION. I can hardly bring myself to say the word sometimes.
REJECTION: A word loaded with searing memories, deep scars, and jaded emotions.
REJECTION: Is there anything more painful? Is there anything more devastating than loving someone who who spurns your love?
May I get personal with you for a moment? May I have your permission to ask, Have you ever felt the betrayal of rejection? Have you ever loved someone or someones, only to have him/her/they walk out of your life, perhaps forever? Have you ever loved, only to have your love spurned? Loved with what the poet might call an unrequited love?
Trust me: You are not alone. As you will be reminded in this PODCAST.
Welcome to a day in the life of Jesus. No Saturday in recorded history ever began so wondrously. And no Saturday in history ever ended so tragically.
And no Saturday in recorded history has ever had so much to say to so many of us, including you. And even including others about whom who care so much.

May these simple words, offered in humility, be a continual blessing in your life.
