Heb 5:5-11 NKJV

So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him:  "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You."  As He also says in another place: "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek";  who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, 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, called by God as High Priest "according to the order of Melchizedek,"


As I carefully read that passage, I notice first that Jesus did not glorify Himself to become High Priest. He did not self promote Himself in anyway for any position. And the highest position that He could have was to be God's Son, of which His Father validated, not man. The second thing that is quickened to me is that Jesus was heard because of His godly fear. WOW. And finally, I see that even though He had obtained the highest validation, honor and authority of being God's Son, still He suffered, still He learned obedience and still He had to completely mature in His Son-ship. Jesus was the first born of many brethren. Lord help us to follow in Your footsteps into our own mature son-ship. 


KJV Hebrews 12:28

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
