Last week at Bible Study, I had the privelege of teaching about how God's love "corrects" me.
I love teaching the Word of God, mostly because I get to learn way more than the people I talk with. I get to delve in and discover so much more about God than when I just observe.
So, even after a week has gone by, I have been chewing on God's love correcting me.
The book we are going through is called "Steadfast Love" by Debbie Alsdorf.
This particular week on correcting, the author took us through Hebrews chapter 12 in such an incredible way. I find myself revisiting it often.
But, one particular part has really worked on me all week. Two words really. They are found in Hebrews 12:3.
Consider the one who endured such adversity.
Think about all that Jesus went through.
Think about that.
I can probably echo thoughts that many have had lately. Life is crazy. If it isn't one thing, it's another. How much more can I take?
And yet, I consider Jesus.
The price He paid, the amount He endured, the sufferings He suffered...
and Hebrews 12:11 says that "no discipline is enjoyable while it is happening, but painful! But, afterward, there will be a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it."
I know my Jesus.
He is worth it.
