Hebrews 12:10-11

April 27, 2015 Leave a comment

For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share his holiness. Now, discipline always seems painful rather than pleasant at the time, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

The Benefits of Discipline

October 1, 2014 Leave a comment

Endure hardship as God’s discipline and rejoice that He is treating you as His children, for what child doesn’t experience discipline from a parent? But if you are not experiencing the correction that all true children receive, then it may be that you are not His children after all. Remember, when our human parents disciplined us, we respected them. If that was true, shouldn’t we respect and live under the correction of the Father of all spirits even more? Our parents corrected us for a time as seemed good to them, but God only corrects us to our good so that we may share in His holiness.

When punishment is happening, it never seems pleasant, only painful. Later, though, it yields the peaceful fruit called righteousness to everyone who has been trained by it (Hebrews 12:7-11, The Voice).

Verses 7-9

I am telling all of you the truth. I have heard the Eternal’s decree.
He said clearly to me, “You are My son.
Today I have become your Father.
The nations shall be yours for the asking,
and the entire earth will belong to you.
They are yours to crush with an iron scepter,
yours to shatter like fragile, clay pots.” (The Voice)

“You are My son. Today I have become your Father” is quoted in Acts 13:33, Hebrews 1:5, and Hebrews 5:5 to describe Jesus’ ministry.

Confidence in Leaders

October 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Verse 17 presents an interesting challenge. We are told to submit to our leaders.

What if a leader is on the wrong track?

How do we encourage them to do the right thing without making their service difficult and unpleasant?
