2 Timothy 3:16-17

“All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”
Hebrews 12:7-13
“It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live?
For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness. Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble,and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed.”


What do these verses have in common? The theme of discipline. The Lord disciplines those that He loves. See, this verse really made sense to me today. I was talking to a dear friend and she (rightfully) rebuked me. I am so thankful for people like her, the body of Christ. The Lord uses that to grow and challenge me, all things that I need. The Lord really answered my prayer to “show me the sin that I can’t see”. Wow. I’m really in awe of how God works in my life to sanctify me. Praise Him!
