About This Message

 

MISUNDERSTANDING GOD’S DISCIPLINE

1. DON’T MAKE LIGHT OF IT.

2. DON’T BE CRUSHED BY IT.

UNDERSTANDING GOD’S DISCIPLINE

1. GOD’S DISCIPLINE SHOWS ME THAT HE LOVES ME.

“…because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”
Hebrews 12:6 (NIV)

2. GOD’S DISCIPLINE SHOWS ME THAT I BELONG TO HIM.

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.
Hebrews 12:7-8 (NIV)

3. GOD’S DISCIPLINE SHOWS ME I HAVE POTENTIAL.

…but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
Hebrews 12:10-11 (NIV)
