Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the book of Hebrews with Chapter 12 and in our text we see God's discipline proves his love, how we are to live our lives, and warns us against refusing to listen. In making application we see that God has a plan for our lives and just like a runner in a race we need to focus on the Lord, asking Him which step to take next. How about you? Are you focused on the Lord? Let us learn from our text today and the author of Hebrews who compares the Christian life to a race and we should focus on the Lord for direction on every step we take.
