Jesus, perfect, therefore the source of eternal salvation (Hebrews 5:9)

"And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him . . ." - Hebrews 5:9

First of all, I desperately wanted to use the word "ergo" instead of therefore because I felt it slightly snobby. But feared the reading base would not understand. Is that even snobbier?

Someday I would like to be able to look back on my life and think I've saved someone's life. I have helped lead a few people to Jesus and I like to think that basically counts, but really it's Jesus doing the saving and I just get to play a part.

I don't know about you but I'm far from perfect. I can think of at least um... 5 things off the top of my head that make me less than perfect (and that's only because I'm willing to follow that train of thought to it's obvious conclusion down a road of millions of possibilities).

I'm fearful, selfish, unkind, self seeking, and just plane lame. What does your list include?

But God, in Jesus, being made perfect, became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey Him. Awesome.

That's my God. Worthy of praise because of His perfection. Because of His awesome offering of Himself as salvation for me and you.

I'm learning to adore a bit better. I hope I can keep it up.
