“Rejected But Accepted”
Frank Peretti is a famous writer, speaker, and Christian children’s video producer and host of Wild & Wacky Bible Stories. Kids and teens were mean to him when he was growing up in school. He was bullied. He could have just quit, but he didn’t. He trusted in God to be his best friend.
I have experienced bullying and meanness from others in my life too. See my testimony #3 “Rejected but Accepted”, and other testimonials that talk about the bullying I have experienced. I thank God that Frank and I did not let bullying stop us from trusting God and overcoming. We can be best friends with God!
I John 3:21
21 My dear friends, if our hearts do not make us feel guilty, we can come without fear into God’s presence.
This friendship with God should cause us to want to obey Him. We also need to live lives full of God’s love. We need to teach others to not bully each other. To not be mean.
I John 4:7-8
7 Dear friends, we should love each other, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has become God’s child and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
God loved us so much He gave us Jesus. Let’s love God, and each other!
