The Apostles were to preach repentance, drive out demons and heal the sick.
What a daunting task!
Jesus prepared them to be rejected.
We also are sent to spread the gospel in whatever way we can, in whatever time, place, or group that we find ourselves in. We, too, at times will be rejected.
We need to trust in God’s plan for us. Can we balance this trust with our own fear of rejection?
