Mark 6:11 - And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!"
And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
In Mark 6:11 we read, And whoever will not receive you nor hear you. When you depart from there, shake the dust off of your feet as a testimony against them. Jesus will tell his disciples as they go out to teach and to preach. When you go to a city and the people reject you--you can't find a household that will take you in, that will receive you, that will hear your words--when that happens, you understand something: they're not rejecting you. They're rejecting the one who sent you. We need to learn as we teach and preach to others. The rejection of the message is not a rejection of us. It's a rejection of the Father. It's a rejection of Christ. It's a rejection of the one who sent the message.
