Devotion – Hebrews 5

S – Although he was the Son, he learned obedience from what he suffered.

  Hebrews 5:8 CSB 

O – Jesus was obedient to God by taking the form of His Son, leaving heaven, becoming a human and going to the cross.  There is suffering in all of this journey. Compare Php 2:6–8, “equal with God, but … took upon Him the form of a servant, and became obedient unto death,” &c. He was obedient already before going to the cross by becoming a servant.  His obedience took him from God, to human, to servant and sacrifice.  

A – I want to grow in my obedience to God’s word and in His leading each day.  This will take on different forms and roles.  Give me the courage to remain obedient in each situation.

R – Lord, help me to do this.
