The Righteousness Which Becomes The Portion Of Every Born-Again Baby

By Pieter Kirstein 

 

 

The righteousness which becomes the portion of every born-again baby is not the same righteousness which becomes the portion of those who have passed under the rod of the Father's discipline spoken of in Hebrews 12.

 

 

Hebrews 12:4-11 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. 

And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

 

 

 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 

 

 

But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 

 

 

Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

 

 

 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

 

 

This is so, because after the impartation of the righteousness afforded by the finished propitiation work of His cross unto salvation, we must still grow up and be corrected by the hand of God until the fruits of Christ-likeness becomes evident.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
