Facing Rejection...

Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
How did He respond to criticism and rejections? First, with steadfastness, He did not tone down His message, nor did He stop doing what He knew was right. Second, with strength, Ahead of Him was the Cross-but He did not loose courage or shrink from what He knew was God's will. Third, with submission. When Herod prodded Him to defend Himself, "He answered him nothing" (Luke 23:9) . Only one thing mattered; Fulfilling God's purpose for His life.
How will we meet criticism? I pray I would as Christ did...
