…for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them. —I Samuel 8:7

            This rejecting of the Lord from being King over Israel is the same problem our world has today.  People in this world do not want Jesus to be their King.  They want someone else or something else or themselves to rule their lives.

            Brothers and sisters, those of you who have called on the Name of the Lord, Jesus is our King.  We are His servants.  As His servants we are to serve according to His purposes.  Jesus reigns and we are to yield to the desires of our King.

            Now, as you serve the Lord and share the gospel with others, many unfortunately will reject the message you bring.  Remember this; it is not you they are rejecting.  It is the One who has sent You with the message. 

It is like an earthly king who sends his servant with a message to some of his people.  They may reject the messenger and even kill the messenger who is only a carrier of the message.  The people are ultimately rejecting the king who sent the messenger with the message.  They are rebelling against his message and he himself.

So it is in this world.  King Jesus has sent us with His message of the good news of the gospel.  We are carriers of that message.  The message is His— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD6khv6pGkw&t=446s People’s rejection of the message is a rejection of His Kingship.  Still, we are to bring the message to people.  We do not know who those are who will accept the message and call on our Lord Jesus to be the King of their lives.  There will be those who reject the message and our King, but let us be faithful to our King and getting His message out.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKTqwBetI1I

Dear Father I am so grateful for the message of King Jesus being brought to me.  Now, may I faithfully bring that message to others and not be fearful of rejection, knowing it is Him they are ultimately rejecting, sad as that is.  May I go in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.  So be it!
