As the time drew near for him to ascend to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. He sent messengers ahead to a Samaritan village to prepare for his arrival. But the people of the village did not welcome Jesus because he was on his way to Jerusalem. When James and John saw this, they said to Jesus, "Lord, should we call down fire from heaven to burn them up?" But Jesus turned and rebuked them. So they went on to another village.
— Luke 9:51-56 NLT
Some folks just aren't ready to meet Jesus at his coming in glory. Some reject him because they don't believe in the divine or struggle to build their lives based on faith. Others reject Jesus because of his race, his gender, his time in history, or the prejudices they have developed about his followers. Our response must not be anger or hostility — these responses use too much energy, damage our hearts, and alienate unbelievers. Instead, our response should be doing good when and where we can, and when we are rejected, we move on to the next open door. Hopefully, the closed door will open sometime in the future, and many will come to know Jesus when the time in their hearts is right — just as happened at other times with some Samaritans. 
Father, when folks reject Jesus before even giving him a chance, please keep me patient and hopeful, not bogged down or resentful. Help me see the open doors you have placed before me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
