You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in the contest against sin.
Also you have forgotten the counsel which speaks with you as sons: "My son, don't despise the discipline of ADONAI or become despondent when he corrects you.
For ADONAI disciplines those he loves and whips everyone he accepts as a son."
Regard your endurance as discipline; God is dealing with you as sons. For what son goes undisciplined by his father?
All legitimate sons undergo discipline; so if you don't, you're a mamzer and not a son!
Furthermore, we had physical fathers who disciplined us, and we respected them; how much more should we submit to our spiritual Father and live!
For they disciplined us only for a short time and only as best they could; but he disciplines us in a way that provides genuine benefit to us and enables us to share in his holiness.
Now, all discipline, while it is happening, does indeed seem painful, not enjoyable; but for those who have been trained by it, it later produces its peaceful fruit, which is righteousness.
So, strengthen your drooping arms, and steady your tottering knees;
and make a level path for your feet; so that what has been injured will not get wrenched out of joint but rather will be healed.
