Time To Endure 5
Jesus was tempted in all ways we are (Heb 4:15-16). Mercy withholds that which we deserve; Grace supplies us that which we don't deserve. Jesus is the Master because He mastered the course. We have need of endurance; we can turn back and lose focus (Heb 10:35-39). There's only one sacrifice (Heb 10:10, Heb 10:12, Heb 10:14). We are delivered from ruin (Psa 103:4). We are saved from non-production (Heb 10:38, Mat 24:13).
We learn at least 7 things from the cross:
- We need to learn to forgive (Luk 23:34).
- We need to lead others to Christ (Luk 23:43).
- We need to learn to love (Joh 19:26-27).
- We need to learn to communicate (Mat 27:46).
- We need to entrust ourselves to Him (Luke 23:46).
- We need to embrace our need (Joh 19:28).
- We need to finish (Joh 19:30).
Three progressions of discipline: rebuke, chastening, and scourging ( Heb 12:3-6). Discipline from the Lord is proof we are His children (Heb 12:7-9). God's goal is to make us like Him (Heb 12:10-12).
