Though He was God’s Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered. After He was perfected, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him. Hebrews 5:8-9
Jesus, the SON of the Living God, came to earth as a newborn babe, grew-up to be a man. But even though He was the Son of God, He was man, and being a MAN, He LEARNED OBEDIENCE by that which He suffered. And He was ALWAYS subject to His Father God’s will.
In Luke’s Gospel, he tells us that: “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men” (Luke 2:52). His incarnation into becoming a human being, gave Him experiential knowledge about the human condition. He was able to EXPERIENCE SUFFERING, which became a REALITY, and He was able to SYMPATHIZE with His followers. He was OBEDIENT to His Father’s will, EVEN unto DEATH
Through His OBEDIENCE and SUFFERING, although He has ALWAYS BEEN PERFECT, in EVERY way, He was PERFECTED in becoming the SAVIOR of ALL mankind. If He would have stayed in Heaven, He could not have been our PERFECT SAVIOR. However, through His Birth, Death, Burial, RESURRECTION, and having been ASCENDED into Heaven. He COMPLETED the work of SALVATION.
This SALVATION was accomplished by OBEDIENCE. We know that SALVATION comes by FAITH. So what is right? This SALVATION came by OBEDIENCE of FAITH. You cannot have FAITH without being OBEDIENT to the WORD and WILL of God. So SAVING FAITH is the kind of FAITH that will bring OBEDIENCE. Are you OBEDIENT to GOD?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to Him, you are DISOBEDIENT, and you are facing an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. But if you will be OBEDIENT to the WILL of God, He will give you an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. To do that you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be an OBEDIENT CHILD, with an ETERNITY in HEAVEN. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
