This week’s Sunday talk will be by Heaven’s White Noise and the post is called “Whom the Lord Loveth he Chasteneth”.
I feel like I’ve been chastened by life recently, so I did a study on “chastening” in scripture. I read quite a few verses about being chastened after sin… kind of depressing. Does that mean I’m a sinner?
One of the last things I read was Hebrews 12. And I felt hope 🙂 Paul said:
“…despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?” (Hebrews 12:5-7)
Though I know my sin probably justifies chastening enough, Paul’s words are reassuring (my HWN recently). Yes, I am a sinner, but I know Heavenly Father loves me… and chastening is in fact evidence of that 🙂
