The Difference Between Violence & Discipline

Sometimes it feels as if God has it out for you, like He’s about to “zap you” or something. I hear this a lot from even those who know Christ; they believe that they are still under God’s wrath, and feel the consequences of their actions, believing that it is God wanting to torture and hurt them for the things they have done (or neglected to do).

But for the Believer, God is a Good, Good Father… and when it comes to our sin, God the Father is not out to get us. Even when we do sin against Him, He disciplines those He loves and calls His own (Hebrews 12:6). This is crucial for the Christian to know: While our sin may have its consequences that we have to live through, God is not trying to zap you for your sin!hebrews

 

Friend, right now may hurt—but know this: There is a difference between violence and discipline— and God does not violently lash out in wrath. He is your Father, and He is always, always FOR—not against— you. Rest in that. ❤


 Do you know Jesus?

Jesus Christ took on the wrath of God, that we deserved. Learn more about Christ—and His sacrifice for you—here.


Please pray…

  • For the Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu
  • That Jesus would bring Justice to those who need it most
  • That those who need to do the right thing would do the right thing by the help and power of Jesus.

Jesus Loves you!
Thank You for your prayers!!!
