Multiply 2019: Rejection Mark 6:1-29

Rejection is saying you’re not good enough.

3 Rejections in Mark 6:1-29

Rejection of Identity (Vv.1-6a)

Rejection of Message (Vv. 6b-13)

Rejection of Justice (Vv. 14-29)

Mark 6b-13

Then Jesus went from village to village, teaching the people. And he called his twelve disciples together and began sending them out two by two, giving them authority to cast out evil spirits. He told them to take nothing for their journey except a walking stick—no food, no traveler’s bag, no money. He allowed them to wear sandals but not to take a change of clothes.

10 “Wherever you go,” he said, “stay in the same house until you leave town. 11 But if any place refuses to welcome you or listen to you, shake its dust from your feet as you leave to show that you have abandoned those people to their fate.”

12 So the disciples went out, telling everyone they met to repent of their sins and turn to God. 13 And they cast out many demons and healed many sick people, anointing them with olive oil.

God will disappoint you, but He is never disappointing.

Flipping the Narrative

Jesus enables us to reject the pursuits/purposes/plans/passions that aren’t “good enough” and embrace the abundant life He has for us.

Reject your history; Embrace His Story

Reject the Savior-complex; Embrace the Savior

Reject your life; Embrace His Life
