“Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?
“For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.
“Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:9-11 (NKJV)
Praying for every person on earth to have this ‘peaceable fruit of righteousness’ in your hearts, to be partakers, recipients of His holiness, to be filled with the knowledge of God, His Kingdom and dominion and with His Holy Spirit. To have hope in His goodness through trials and gladness, in Jesus’ name.
