Reference: Chastening


This is in scripture mostly linked with love and sonship, and implies 'instruction' and 'discipline.' He that loveth chasteneth. Pr 13:24; De 8:5; Heb 12:5-11; Re 3:19. "Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest." Ps 94:12. The chastening at the time does not seem to be joyous but grievous, yet afterward it yields the peaceable fruits of righteousness to those exercised thereby. Heb 12:11. Joh 15:2 shows that a Christian may be chastened of the Father that he may bring forth more fruit.
