God sent His Son to die for all of our sins, but that does not give us a free pass to do whatever we want and keep on sinning. We need to be disciplined and follow God. When we do not, our Lord and Savior will discipline us in order to bring us back into the fold. Just like we tell our kids, there are consequences for our actions (or inactions). We typically will not like them but consequences or discipline will help us grow the habits God would have us do.
Questions for further thought:
1. What consequences or discipline are you experiencing?
2. How is the consequence or discipline helping you grow?
Challenge: Thank God for loving you enough to allow consequences and discipline to occur so you can grow in Him.
