V4 And no one can become a high priest simply because he wants such an honor. He must be called by God for this work, just as Aaron was.
V7, 8 While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God. Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered.
V12 You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food.
Thank You Jesus for Your obedience, prayers, compassion and love - for ALL IN THIS WORLD! Thank You for doing what none other could! Lord helps us to learn obedience from suffering. Help us to learn to cling to You in our darkest hours, trusting You have already won our battle and whatever the outcome, regardless the circumstance, You are forever good, merciful and loving. Cause us to grow from places of spiritual infancy to the mature spiritual believers You created us to be. Thank You for helping us to learn the difference between right and wrong, according to Your will, and empowering us with Your healing and comforting Spirit to live along the right path while we are still growing. In Jesus Name, amen!
