For it was fitting that he, (God) for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many children to glory, should make the leader to their salvation (Jesus) perfect through suffering. He who consecrates (Jesus) and those who are being consecrated (us) all have one origin (God). Therefore, he (Jesus) is not ashamed to call them “brothers” saying: “I will proclaim your name to my brethren, in the midst of the assembly I will praise you.” Heb_2:5-12
The sweetness of God’s grace is always sweeter when it is first discovered or when an effort has been expended in order to discover it. The beauty of God’s grace is all around us. We just need to find it. And sometimes we may need to sacrifice, to suffer a little in order to see it. Jesus did the suffering for us in order that we may attain the Grace of Salvation that God had planned for us from the beginning of time. Can we accept that grace? And when we do recognize it and all that had gone into its being offered to us – then we’ll experience a total metanoia, a total change in our entire being to never want to sin again. Because, in the end, nothing, absolutely nothing is sweeter than the Grace of Salvation that Jesus has gained for us!
