You will not take their defilement with you

“And if anyone doesn’t listen to you and rejects your message when you leave that house or town, shake the dust off your feet as a prophetic act that you will not take their defilement with you” Matthew 10:14  (TPT)

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ clearly told the disciples when He was sending them out for the first time to preach the Good News of the kingdom that they will meet people who will not only not listen to them but will also reject their message.

However, the disciples should not be discouraged by this none acceptance of the message and shake it off like dust from their feet.

Today some of us cling to that rejection of the message and allow it to serve s discouragement in preaching the gospel to other people.

Remember when you meet with people who not only challenge your message and literarily defile you don’t give up on spreading the Good News to other people.

In what way and manner have you felt offended because people reject you?

“When you knock on a door, be courteous in your greeting. If they welcome you, be gentle in your conversation. If they don’t welcome you, quietly withdraw. Don’t make a scene. Shrug your shoulders and be on your way. You can be sure that on Judgment Day they’ll be mighty sorry—but it’s no concern of yours now.” Matthew 10:14-15  (MSG)

When you share the message of the Kingdom, and they accept the message Praise God for that move on.

However when the message is rejected don’t turn their rejection into a “message” to the next people God will send you to, leave them and their rejection of the Gospel for God to sort out.

Don’t linger there and be exacerbated by their degradation. 

Keep on sharing the Good News as the Lord Jesus instructed. 

Do not take their defilement with you.
