Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered. Hebrews 5:8 NASB
Suffering, trials, tribulation is part of living in this world of sin. But God, the Father, sent His perfect Son as an example and hope for us. Did Christ suffer? Did not Satan tempt Him? Was He not ridiculed and treated horrendously? Yet, He did not sin. He was our example of obedience to the Father.
And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, Hebrews 5:9 NASB
Jesus, the perfect obedient Son, is the hope of eternal salvation to those who are obedient to Him.
Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Philippians 2:8 NASB
Jesus was obedient to the death. How far are you willing to go for eternal salvation?
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. James 1:2, 12 NASB
🌹 Will you look at suffering in your life as opportunity to grow in Christ to a faithful, obedient child of God? Or grumble, complain and be disobedient?
