Hebrews 12:12-13

Hebrews 12:11
For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.


Hebrews 12:12-13
Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.


1. While looking to Jesus… (vs 2)
2. Lay down weight & sin. (vs 1)
3. Run the race with endurance (vs 1)
4. Consider His pain as you endure yours (vs 3-11)
5. Lift up hands, strengthen weak knees
6. Make straight path for your feet


Self Discipline & Imposed Discipline.

Self discipline prepares us for moments when discipline is imposed


Self discipline protects us from moments when discipline is imposed.

Galatians 5:17
For the desire of the flesh is against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, in order to keep you from doing whatever you want.
