Today, we’ll cover Hebrews chapter 12, verses 3-11. In this passage, the author turns to Jesus as a model for our faith in the midst of difficulties and trials. Jesus lived on this earth as a man. He suffered temptations, yet without sin. He knew what it was like to be hungry and to go without sleep. He was well-acquainted with rejection and false accusations. And yet He was faithful to His Father and lived His life without sin. Jesus suffered. So will we. But like Jesus, we have a future reserved for us in heaven. While we live on this earth, God will lovingly discipline us. He will continue to patiently transform us into the likeness of His Son.
