Feel like a little rejection?

Jesus, the only Son of God, is persecuted. Even now, 2,000 years after the death of His physical body. 

 He who is poor, gentle, mourning; He who hungers and thirsts for righteousness; He who is merciful, pure of heart and a peacemaker is not welcome in this world. The Blessed Son of God is a threat to the established order and a source of constant irritation to those who consider themselves the rulers of this world. 

Without  accusing anyone, He is considered an accuser. Without condemning anyone, He makes people feel guilty and ashamed. Without judging anyone, those who see Him feel judged. In their eyes, He cannot be tolerated and needs to be destroyed because letting Him be seems like a confession of guilt.

When we want to become like Jesus, we cannot expect to always be like and admired. We have to be prepared to be rejected.
