What is sin, and why God disciplines those he loves. Bible Munch
Bible Study – Bible Devotional – Bible Lesson Just as predictable, as when a ball is thrown
up, that it will come down, the same predictability is true when a Christian sins. When our sin
goes up against God’s standards, God’s discipline is sure to fall back down on us.
If you’re facing difficulty or pain in your life, and have been wondering why, Jeremiah
13:22 could reveal the answer. Jeremiah states, speaking for the people “And
if you say in your heart, ‘Why have these things come upon me?’ it is for the greatness
of your iniquity.” In other words, Sin has consequences.
The Bible defines sin in 1 John 3:4, saying, “Everyone who makes a practice of sinning
also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.” What is sin? Sin is lawlessness. It’s open
rebellion against God. He created us. He knows what’s best for us. And because God loves
us, and wants what’s best for us, he tells us in the Bible what is good and what is evil.
But when a Christian choses to sin over God, they are calling God a liar, saying his ways are the wrong
ways, and our ways are the right ways. No matter if we sin openly or secretively,
Numbers 32:23 says, “You have sinned against the LORD, and be sure your sin will find you
out.” For the Christian, a consequence of sin is
discipline. But even in God’s discipline, our Father isn’t curly punishing us… he
is calling us, urging us, to draw near to him, to get back into a right relationship with him.
In Revelation 3:19 God says, “Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous
and repent.” If you find yourself facing God’s discipline,
remember God disciplines those he loves. So allow that discipline to, do its job, and
draw you to repentance, and back in to a right relationship with God. And that’s today’s Bible Munch! If this Bible Study was encouraging, please

  2. Judges cycle

    anyone who goes after sin and idols, God will let them go after them but sin in it of itself is punishment and thus follows suffering. Sin produces death.

  3. Many months ago I sinned against God because of my PRIDE, even though God already personally told me over and over not to do that. Nevertheless, I let my pride won, and I am still facing heavy consequences since then and it hasn't ended yet when I am typing this.

    However, through hardness, God still loves me and I can feel it. I understand that was all my fault, yet God still uses this opportunity to discipline me and teach me a lot of valuable things.

    Therefore, brothers and sisters, keep walking in faithfulness even when you face hardship of discipline and soon you will discover greater and invaluable things.

    Edit: thank you very much for this video. This is like God's reminder to me of all I have been through for those months.

  4. Love this message! Applicable for me recently. God told me to surrender an urgency about some things. I did…for about a week! Thankfully, He kept dealing with me. Lovingly. Softly. I don't know how to describe it. During devotional time yesterday, He reminded me…forgiven. Just confess your sin. He's certainly patient. He'll help you overcome

  5. I'm so thankful for Jesus and what He did for us by dying on the cross and raising again. He reconciled us all, and He provided a way for all who call on His name to be in right relationship with God. I am so glad as believers we aren't falling in and out of our right standing, but we are continually in Jesus and made right always.

    When we sin we aren't falling out of righteousness, but exactly what you said, we are believing a lie. We are mistrusting God and what He says about himself, and we do need to repent. We need to change our thinking. For that is what repentance truly is…changing the way we are thinking.

    All behavior follows what we believe. So when we sin, we are believing a lie about God or ourselves. God invites us to turn from the lie to the truth of who He is and what He thinks about us. Because of Jesus, His thoughts about us are good. That is truly amazing and good news!
