Are Christians still going to have to go through chastisement? Is there still a need for correction and instruction once some one is saved?

These doctrines of Jesus, which are written in the Holy Bible, have the true answer!

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness...

Hebrews 12:11 ...no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Proverbs 8:32-33 Now therefore, listen to me, my children, For blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, And do not disdain it.

Hebrews 12:5-8 “ My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the LORD loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives.” If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

Proverbs 8:10-11 Receive my instruction, and not silver, And knowledge rather than choice gold...

Proverbs 19:20 Listen to counsel and receive instruction, That you may be wise in your latter days.

Proverbs 19:27 Cease listening to instruction, my son, And you will stray from the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 1:7 ... fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 15:31-32 The ear that hears the rebukes of life Will abide among the wise. He who disdains instruction despises his own soul, But he who heeds rebuke gets understanding.

Proverbs 6:23 ...the commandment is a lamp, And the law a light; Reproofs of instruction are the way of life...

Proverbs 13:1 A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, But a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

Proverbs 13:18 ...he who regards a rebuke will be honored.

Proverbs 29:1 He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck, Will suddenly be destroyed...

Proverbs 23:12 Apply your heart to instruction, And your ears to words of knowledge.

Proverbs 4:13 Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; Keep her, for she is your life.

Proverbs 12:1 Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, But he who hates correction is stupid.

Proverbs 15:10 ...he who hates correction will die.

Proverbs 15:5 A fool despises his father’s instruction, But he who receives correction is prudent.

Proverbs 10:17 He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, But he who refuses correction goes astray.

Example...

Jeremiah 7:22-24 ...I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices. But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.’ Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward.

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

Jeremiah 7:25-28 Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day, I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them. Yet they did not obey Me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers. “Therefore you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not obey you. You shall also call to them, but they will not answer you. “So you shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the LORD their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.

Revelations 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

Does it please Jesus more when you obey Him and His word, rather than ideas, opinions, theologies and tradition? Don't you think Jesus is more pleased when you truly listen for His voice, His instructions and His correction?

Have you been guilty like our forefathers by trusting in tradition, ritual and man's commandments rather than a relationship with Jesus?
