God deals with us as children and will child-train and scourge us if we get out of line. We do not live under law, but that does not mean we have no standard for living.
And you are in a state of having forgotten the exhortation which is to you as sons, it disputes, “My son, do not regard lightly child training from [the] Lord, nor grow weary by His reproach.” For whom [the] Lord loves, He child trains, and He scourges every son who He receives. You endure because of child training God bring as sons to you. For who is a son whom a father does not child train? But if, assuming it is true, we are without child training, of which all have become partners, then we are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, indeed we have the fathers according to the flesh, child trainers and we respected. Will we not be more put in subjection to the Father of the spirits, and we will live? For indeed those ones child trained us facing a few days according to their approval, but the [God] upon the basis to bring us together for the purpose of the receiving of His holiness. And all child training facing, on the one hand, at the moment is not esteemed to be joyful, but grief; on the other hand, later to the ones through it having been training it rewards peaceable fruit of righteousness. Hebrews 12:5-11
