Rejected in Invitation
Jesus healed ten guys of leprosy – only one came back to thank him. Jesus was constantly rejected, by all manner of people. If Jesus only got one in ten, and frankly he healed all ten! Why would we expect any more than one in ten response. Now I know that might sound depressing, but it seems that not everyone will be thankful for an invitation. We need to return to faithfulness in mission not a success mentality. Not everyone responded to Jesus’s invitation to take a closer look at the kingdom of God, nevertheless Jesus did not give up and continued to offer the invitation, which now echoes to us in our generation. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
