Hebrews Challenge Chapter 12

Hebrews 12:1-29

I've added my thoughts to each of the chapters of Hebrews...about what stuck out and why.

But today...we should just let the passage speak.

7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 11 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.

12 Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. 13 “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.

Amen (So be it)

Yes, that passage definitely speaks to us all. We will continue to kneel in prayer. We are all children of God. "God calls us to fearless obedience."
