In Luke 10:11, Jesus instructs His disciples on how to respond when they encounter rejection while spreading the Good News. They are to wipe off the dust from their feet as a sign of warning and judgment, and as a symbolic act of disassociation from those who refuse to accept the message of the kingdom of God.
This verse serves as a reminder that, as followers of Christ, we may experience rejection when sharing the Gospel with others. It is important to maintain a spirit of humility and perseverance, acknowledging that not everyone will be receptive to our message. We should not be discouraged by rejection but continue to share the Good News with others, trusting in God’s sovereignty and the nearness of His kingdom.
