Hebrews 12 5And 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: 6For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. I have heard this preached recently, that if the Lord does not chastise us, then the simple answer is that we are not sons. I sat back and thought.. I dont feel as though I have been chastised or "spanked", even though I know that I have done wrong. WHat is meant by this passage? Any help?
