Jesus is a Better Example of Faith (Part 2) (Hebrews 12:1-17)

Dave D'Amour, September 24, 2017
Part of the Hebrews - Jesus is Better series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

If you were looking at a "Hallmark card" with blanks in it, and it was a Father's Day card, how would you fill in these blanks:
“The Lord those He LOVES,
and every SON whom He receives.”

Most would put "Protect" and "Provide" - the modern motto of fatherhood.

But because of His higher love, our Heavenly Father has a very different answer: "Discipline" and "Chastise".

God is always orchestrating great purpose for our good in His perfect discipline.

If we fixate on hardships, we get weary & wobbly in our race of faith. To be reinvigorated in our race, we need to Fix our eyes on Jesus, God's BELOVED SON, understanding the PRIVILEGE of God's Discipline, the PURPOSES of God's Discipline, and the PRODUCE of God's Discipline.
