Bible Verses About Rejection

Whenever you feel rejected, left out, and disappointed, remember that Jesus experienced rejection as well. Whenever you feel rejection from the world, from a relationship, from others, remember God loved you so much that He gave Jesus to die for you. Stay strong because as Christians you will have disappointments in this world.

John 16:33 says, “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” You have the Holy Spirit inside you to help you and you have a loving God who will replace your feeling of disappointment for joy and your unloved feeling with happiness and confidence. Always remember that God deeply loves you, He created you, and He has a plan for you. 1 John 4:8 “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
