The lesson on October 9, 2022 was part 25 of the “Running the Race” study. Wayne reviewed what we learned in our previous lesson, specifically the activities of faith, the two sides of the coin in Hebrews, the sin that so easily beset us, looking past those heroes of faith to Jesus, who is our captain and author and finisher of our faith up to the the topic of today’s lesson, which was “Chastening”.  This is from the Greek word παιδεία which means  training, discipline (Eph 6:4; 2 Tim 3:16; Heb 12:5, 7, 8, 11.)  (Also look at Job 5:17; Prov. 3:11; Isa. 26:16; Heb. 12:5, 7, 11).  We started looking at how the Law applies to us today even in this dispensation of The Mystery where the Apostle PAul says in 1 Timothy 1:8-11 KJV “8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.” Look at Matt. 7:12; 11:13; 22:40; Lk. 16:16; Jn. 1:17; 7:23, 51; Rom. 2:14; 3:19; 4:15; 5:20; 7:1, 7, 12, 14; 8:2; 1 Cor. 9:8; 14:34; 15:56; Gal. 3:12, 17, 19, 21, 24; 5:14, 23; 1 Tim. 1:8-9; Heb. 7:19, 28; 10:1

The scripture reading was from Deuteronomy 8:2-5 KJV “2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. 3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live. 4 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years. 5 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee.”
