June 7, A Disciple in Training

Share

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
—Proverbs 3:13
A disciple is one who is in training. Being a disciple of Christ brings us to the day-by-day realities of such terms as discipline, rebuke, correction, hardship. Those are not pleasant words….
In times of testing and hardship, I have heard Christians cry in their discouragement, “How can I believe that God loves me?” The fact is, God loves us to such a degree that He will use every necessary means to mature us until we reach “unity of the faith” and attain “unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13).
A critic may cringe and charge that God is breaking our spirits, that we will be worth nothing as a result….Oh, no! That is not true. What God plans is to bring us into accord with the wisdom and power and holiness that flow eternally from His throne. JAF094-095
How good it would be if we could learn that God is easy to live with….He may sometimes chasten us, it is true, but even this He does with a smile. ROR016
Tozer on the Holy Spirit.
