Really? Jesus wasn’t. He came to his own, and they rejected him. He came to free them from the bondage they got themselves into. You would think they would be delighted that someone came with such love for them. But no. They rejected him.
When Jesus sent his disciples out to the villages and towns of their nation, he told them to expect opposition. But why opposition? Their mission was to heal the sick, cleanse lepers, raise the dead, and to tell people the good news of God’s kingdom.
But why such opposition? Because the patterns of this world stand in direct opposition to God’s plan of redemption. So don’t be surprised when you are rejected.
