Hebrews 5:8-9 – Obedience Through Suffering

Hebrews 5:8-9
8
Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

-Although Jesus was always the loyal Son of the Heavenly Father, His time on Earth taught Him a new level of obedience because, for the first time, He had a reason not to obey.  It’s one thing to be willing to obey when you’re in Heaven and everything is good; it’s altogether another thing to obey when you’re being beaten on the way to the Cross.  That’s what the Lord did for us; He accomplished the Father’s will even when that meant suffering.  So when you suffer, know that you are in the presence of One who knows what it means to suffer.  When you obey, you are in the presence of One who knows what it means to obey- even when it’s hard to obey.
