Learned through suffering

"Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him." Hebrews 5.8-9
As Son of Man,Jesus had to endure a lot of suffering to learn obedience. Obedience in the practice of faith, the faith that demands obedience to the voice of God. When faith is not followed by obedience to the Word of God there is no salvation.
Religious life, church attendance, or any position in church, none of this is a sign of faith. What characterizes faith is obedience, without which no man shall be saved.
