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.
Continuing in the faith is much like an endurance race. There is aways challenges, but it is easier if we have discipline and are trained. The same that it would be impossible for the average person to run a marathon without training, we will not finish the race well if we don't have discipline.
In this sermon Pastor Chris Kopp shares how we are disciplined for God's Glory. Delivered to the Galena Bible Church, Sunday August 31st, 2014.
