THE REJECTION OF REJECTION
A Poem by Paul David Tripp
YOU WITHSTOOD THIS PAIN SO THAT I WOULD NEVER HAVE TO. YOU TOOK MY REJECTION SO THAT I WOULD ONLY EVER HAVE ACCEPTANCE.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46)
Thank God for the amazing love of Christ that compelled him to go to the cross on your behalf. Christ was rejected for your sins–prayerfully thank him for covering them.
For further study and encouragement, read Isaiah 53.
