A Father’s Discipline

Hebrews 12:3-11

About the Sermon

Fatherhood is no small calling and discipline is no small part of fatherhood. We might even say that discipline is the uniquely distinguishing characteristic of a father to a son. Are you discouraged in your struggle against sin? Alternatively, are you despondent, even dangerously so? Perhaps you're forgetting something: that you are a son of the father and that your hardships are his love for you.

About the Series

“I appeal to you, brothers, bear with my word of exhortation, for I have written to you briefly” (13:22). That’s how the author of the book of Hebrews ends his letter. While the book of Hebrews is famous for its exposition of the Old Testament in light of Christ, showing Christ to be our great high priest, all of that teaching is for an urgent exhortation: do not fall away. Or, as he put it in 2:1 , “Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.” Jesus is an anchor for our souls. He is anchored in heaven and his work is perfectly fitted to keep us in the midst of every trial and temptation.
