Becoming Yourself
Judah Smith
Hebrews 12:3-11


  • Sometimes following Jesus can make things difficult.
  • There’s gonna be some work but it’s gonna work and He’s working.
  • Work takes some time.
  • God disciplines through training. It’s always redemptive.
  • God’s discipline is a proactive, progressive training to prepare you to be the person you never thought you could be but always wanted to be.
  • You’re not the only one.
  • We fight to not sin.
  • It is not always fun.
  • Jesus did not avoid pain.
  • God will use things that are not fun to train you.
  • Joy is a choice.
  • It’s not punishment, it’s training.
  • Jesus took your punishment for you on the cross.
  • Discipline is a form of heavenly compliment.
  • God’s discipline is helping us become who we really are.
  • If you’ll stay at it, you will become the new person you actually are.
  • Punishing looks backwards, training looks forward.
