Persevering Through Hardship!

Persevering Through Hardship! Hebrews 12:4-13 Main Point: We must embrace hardship as Father God’s discipline so that we may run this race with perseverance and be made more like Jesus! Job 5:17-18 (NIV) "Blessed is the man whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he also binds up; he injures, but his hands also heal." Father’s discipline = God’s loving Correction/Chastisement (v.6) to help us turn away from sin, and persevere through hardships. Proverbs 20:30 (NIV) 1 Corinthians 11:32 (CEV) Revelation 3:19 (NIV) 1. Though it is not pleasant, we are not to despise or reject His discipline because He is treating us as His children. verses 5-6 Verse 5 – ‘Make light’ = Despise or regard lightly; care little for 2. We are to endure hardship in our lives as discipline – receiving it as training for righteousness and holiness. verses 7-10 James 1:2-4 3. The result is to make us strong, able to persevere, and able to share in His holiness. verses 11-13 If we be trained by it we actually become more like Jesus!
