Bearing His Reproach

Just as His place in glory is our place, so His place on earth is our place as we go through this sinful world. What is His place down here? It is the place of rejection, for “He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.

He is still the rejected One, and the place that the world has given Him should determine the place that you and I will take. He was rejected, not merely by the barbarian world, not merely by those who were living low, degraded lives, but also by the literary world, the cultured world, and the religious world. It was the religious leaders of the people who demanded His death, and all of the world acquiesced. The world continues to do so. It has its culture, its refinements, its civilization, its religion; but our blessed Lord is apart from it all, and the Word to us is this,

Let us go forth therefore unto Him without the camp, bearing His reproach (Hebrews 13:13).
