Hook: How are good people either ignored or rejected in today’s culture?
Book: The wickedness of that generation was so great that they refused to accept Jesus as Messiah even though He proved His deity by His miracles. Their rejection was deeply entrenched. Therefore, they would receive no more signs until Jesus was raised after three days like Jonah. Even Jonah and Solomon had followers, but their superior—Jesus—was condemned by this crowd. He made it clear that eternity would expose who was really rejected by God. One day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Patience!
Took: Why are Christians surprised by rejection when it happened even to Jesus? How could you better trust God when rejection comes your way?
