What’s the most trouble you got into when you were a kid? What happened?
- Read Galatians 6:7. How have you seen the law of sowing and reaping at work in your life?
- Read Hebrews 12:5-6 and 12:11. Have you ever confused God’s discipline with punishment? How so?
- How does it shape your view of God’s discipline knowing that He disciplines those He loves? What does His discipline produce? What fruit has His discipline produced in your life?
- Read 1 Peter 2:24. Who was punished? What was the result? How do we live in light of this truth – how does it shape the way we think, feel, and walk out our faith?
Are there areas of your life where you are still punishing yourself for actions for which God has already bourn the punishment? Ask God to help you release those things to Him. Are you living with the consequences of sin in your life? Ask God to give you the strength to continue walking in His ways. Thank God that you never have to experience the punishment for your sin and for the gift of righteousness that is ours in Jesus Christ!
