Hebrews 12:5 Part and Parcel

Hebrews 12:5 (KJV)
And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

Key words in this chapter include:

  • Weary
  • Faint
  • Fail
  • Despise

The chapter is a thesis meant to provide the tools to combat these plagues of earthly life. They are no doubt part and parcel of the mortal experience. 

We combat them firstly, by looking unto Jesus 
He is the source of our faith.

Secondly, by considering what He endured
And we are no better than He.

Thirdly, by understanding the purpose of chastening 
It is meant to perfect and make holy.

Fourthly, by following peace\
Seeking to be a help to all men.

Fifthly, by remembering our end 
In the heavenly Jerusalem.

There is so much more in the chapter, but this is enough to make the juices of meditation flow.

To my readers:
First of all, thank you! It is a great joy to me to know you read the thoughts and lessons God has given me in His word. Secondly, I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to leave comments.
