42. Radical in his obedience.

"If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love."( John 15:10) We might wonder why he who was God incarnate, had to learn obedience! Having put on flesh and dwelt among us, he was made like us in every way, except for sin! He had to first learn to obey before he could become the source of God's salvation. 'Although he was a Son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.' (Hebrews 5:8) He was so radical in his obedience to his Father that he didn't shun the idea of dying a shameful death on the cross! 'And being found in the apperance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross! (Philippians 2:8) Therefore, he became the source of life for many. 'For just as through the disobedience of one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.' (Romans 5:19) If Christ himself had to learn obedience before he could be used by God, would it be different for us? Let's learn of him and be radical in our obedience to God that we might also remain in his love. 'This is love for God: to obey his commands.' (1 John 5:3) Amen.
