Discipline > Correction

Gentlemen,

Click here for the Hebrews 12:5-14 Notes from Monday night’s study, when we discovered that God’s discipline of His followers goes far beyond mere negative correction; plus, it flows from His heart of love for us.

Here are several questions to aid your preparation for this coming Monday night’s study on Hebrews 12:15-29.  The more you prepare for this study, the more you will get out of our discussion.

  1. Translate into your own words the exhortation of v. 15 … “See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God.”
  2. Identify one “root of bitterness” that you have cultivated in your heart.  (v. 15)
  3. What lessons can be learned from Esau’s life?  Cf. Genesis 25:21-34 and 27:30-41
  4. Compare and contrast how God reveals Himself to humanity at Mt. Sinai (Exodus 20:18-21) versus Mt. Zion (Revelation 21:1-4, 10-14, 22-27).
  5. How does the blood of Jesus “speak better than the blood of Abel”?  Cf. v. 24 with Hebrews 11:4.
  6. What O.T. passages are quoted in v. 26?
  7. Compare v. 28 with the race that we are to run in v. 1 … what more do we learn about this race of life?
  8. What is the point of calling God a “consuming fire”?  (v. 29)
  9. Practice the discipline of using “The Self Feeder” that I distributed two weeks ago … read the passage (Hebrews 12:15-29) … then fill in the five sections:

Write out the key verse.

What does it mean to me?

What is the breakthrough thought?

How can I apply it to my life?

What do I need to tell God today?

Rick M. is bringing the dessert, which will be served at 7 pm, followed by our study shortly after that … see you Monday!
