Our passage this week is Hebrews 12:3-11. After telling us to run the race with endurance in verses 1-2, the passage now turns to God’s discipline in our life. This is a very challenging passage, as the author tells us that it is normal to be disciplined by God. He disciplines us for our good so we will “share his holiness.” Here are a couple of questions to consider as you think about the passage.
- How have you experienced the discipline of God in your life?
- What does the passage say are the benefits of discipline?
- How does this passage relate to the previous passage on running the race?
- Where do we find hope in this passage?
