What comes to your mind when you think of that word?
If someone called you tonight and said, "I'd like to come over in the morning and rebuke you," how do you think you'd respond? You probably wouldn't run to your friend and say, "The most wonderful thing is going to happen to me tomorrow! _____ is coming over to rebuke me. I can't wait!"
That would be a strange way to respond, wouldn't it? But it would be a biblical way:
Let a righteous man strike me—it is a kindness;
let him rebuke me—it is oil for my head;
let my head not refuse it. (Psalm 141:5)
Oh, to have such sweet security in Jesus that it would be our joy to have another rebuke us!
