Is Approval Important?

Christ sacrificed the honor and good name that were His due and instead chose to suffer endless humiliations, slights, misunderstandings, rebuffs.

  • His relatives did not approve and believe in Him.
  • His townsmen tried to throw Him over a cliff.
  • His neighbors cried, “He has a devil.”  They called Him a glutton and wine-bibber.
  • His disciples misunderstood and misinterpreted His words and actions so that He was cut to the Heart.

To all appearances, His Life was a failure.
