Worthy of being rejected
Humiliation and suffering, who would have thought these two conditions would be a pathway to glory. The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the name. You know there is no aspect of my humanity that has not been experienced by our Saviour. He was one of us and as the hymn Crown him with many Crowns says “who every grief have known that wrings the human breast” Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church and maybe you will get a yes on the other hand maybe you may be able to count yourself worthy of suffering disgrace for the name.
