Obedience

image

Heb 5:8-9

lthough He was a Son, He learned [active, special] obedience through what He suffered

9 And, [His completed experience] making Him perfectly [equipped], He became the Author and Source of eternal salvation to all those who give heed and obey Him,

This is the same experience that we all are to have as Christians. We are to grow into the nature that God has made in the realm of the spirit by a constant renewal of our minds that is characterized by trust and obedience in God.

God has given obedience as a safeguard for ignorance because there are so many things we do not know.

Even though Jesus was the son of God by virtue of His birth, He became a son also by virtue of His walk.

If our lord had to learn obedience we of necessity have to do the same. We cannot walk with God without obedience and trust in the lord God.

There is great need for us to understand that even though our spirits have been regenerated and made new, we have souls that were accustomed to the ways of the flesh and God wants the total man and not just a part of us(our spirits) that is why he has made resources available for us to also be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
