Reverent submission and obedience!
Scripture reading for October 18th: Hebrews 5, Psalm 59, Proverbs 24
Key Scriptures: Hebrews 5:7-9 “In the days of His flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to Him who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence. Although He was a Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered. And being made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.”
Jesus was the Son of God, but came to earth in a human body, subject to all its weakness and limitations. Jesus relied upon prayer and reverent submission to His Father in heaven and obeyed Him perfectly. He learned obedience through suffering because of it. Because of His willing and perfect obedience, He could become the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him!
