Text: Hebrews 5; Ezra 9-10
Did you know that Jesus had to learn obedience?
Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. (Hebrews 8:12)
One of our great tasks in life is to learn how to be obedient. We are to obey Mom and Dad, human authorities, and most of all, the Lord. If Jesus had to learn obedience so must we. And obedience is always learned in the context of a setting where someone else is telling us what to do and then holding our feet to the fire. To this end, God always puts us in those sorts of relationships. Who in your life is in authority over you? As far as obedience, how are you doing? If we are unable to obey humans we can see, how will we ever obey an invisible God?
in Him, Mike
