Follow Someone with a Limp

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“For our God is a consuming fire.” - Hebrews 12:29

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Someone has said, “If you are looking for a leader to follow, find someone with a limp.” The wounded in life are those who have learned difficult lessons through suffering. Do not resist the Shepherd’s rod of correction.

Is the wounding painful? Indeed. Does it seem that you will not be able to bear it? Most certainly. Then why would He subject us to such pain? Because you have a Father who loves you so much that He is willing to hurt you to heal you. What you need to focus on is not your pain, but your Savior. God didn’t save you to take you to heaven. That’s a fringe benefit. God saved you to make you holy—as He is holy.

ACTION POINT:

Read Hebrews 12:1-13. What application can you make from this passage for your life today?
