Open Heavens October 18th MEMORISE:
 
But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Hebrews 12:8

Read Hebrews 12:4

Hebrews 12:4 King James Version (KJV)
4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

Bible in one year   Jeremiah 5-6 Luke 8:4-21

Discipline is the act of training a person to obey rules and follow instructions, which sometimes involves corrective punishment for wrongdoing. The Bible clearly establishes that God expects parents to discipline their children (Proverbs 23:13 – 14, Ephesians 6:4) Parents who failed in this responsibility suffered consequences, as seen in the example of Eli (1 Samuel 2:27 -34). Being a just God, He cannot require discipline from earthly parents and fail in His responsibility to discipline His own children, as the Heavenly Father. All act of disciplining God’s children ultimately come from God, and the method used are determined by Him. However, His motives is always love, while His goals remain making us partakers of His holiness (Hebrew 12:10). God disciplines His children as part of His covenant with them. Consequently, only disciplined children of God have access to His covenant blessing. Job 36:10-11 says:  
                                                                                                                                                                                “He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity. If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.’’
 
Interestingly, God in His infinite wisdom has set discipline as the number one criteria for ascertaining true children of God. Hebrew 12:8 says
 
“ But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.’’                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
Consequently, if you notice that you are getting away with sin and immorality without any type of warning or discipline from God, then you can be sure that heaven does not reorganise you as a true child of God. As soon as a person accepts the Lordship of Jesus Christ, he or she becomes a genuine member of God’s family, and the love of God will immediately kick-start the process of discipline in order to bring the new convert to perfection in due time. May you always cooperate with God for the purpose of receiving proper discipline in Jesus’ Name.
