My friend, Heather Bixler, recently wrote a mini topical Bible study on the subject of rejection and acceptance. Who has not experienced rejection at some point in their lives? I know I have. More than I care to remember.
This wonderful e-book is a four-week study that dives deep into the sources of rejection, the pain of rejection, the lies of rejection and points us to the only source of complete and full acceptance–God our Father. Using examples from her own life, Heather shares her journey in refuting the lies of rejection and embracing the unconditional acceptance of God. A favorite quote of mine is this, “Rejection is all about us, it’s all about the flesh. Rejection is a lie from the enemy that we have chosen to believe. Acceptance is all about God. Acceptance is the truth.”
What I appreciate so much about this study is the emphasis on Scripture memorization. The only way to defeat is a lie is with truth and the source of all truth is God’s Word. Each week has a memory verse and a memorization plan to go with it. (Just what I need!). There are also discussion questions at the end of each chapter to be used in the context of a group.
Are there stories of rejection in your life? Has its lingering sting paralyzed your life in some way? You are not alone in that struggle. Want to learn more? Click here: Rejected – Four Week Mini Bible Study (Becoming Press Mini Bible Studies).
