Scripture: Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? Hebrews 12:7 NIV
Observation: Paul instructs of God’s means of growing Christians in faith and endurance.
Application: Being a Christian is not without strife. Paul says right here that we will endure hardship, which is discipline. Knowing that should make the difficult times of life easier for us.
Prayer: Father, help me to remember that hard times are a time of discipline and growth for me as a Christian. Help me endure. I ask in Jesus’ name. Amen
