learning obedience (like Jesus)

I read this today and God slammed me…

The deep things of life in God are discovered in suffering. So it was with Jesus himself, “Although he was a son [Jesus] learned obedience from what he suffered” (Hebrews 5:8). The same book where we read this also tells us Jesus never sinned (4:15). So ‘learning obedience’ does not mean switching from disobedience to obedience. It means experiencing depths of yieldedness to God that would not have been otherwise demanded.

John Piper “Desiring God”

God help me to learn, help me to experience you!
