Notes From Today's Lesson (my version...feel free to disagree or correct me)
Being restored to the rightful place - Jesus the faithful servant who submitted to God 's will
Jesus did not want to be separated from God, yet he was willing to be sin for us. This teaches us to have the mind of Christ..submitting to Christ. How do we feel about submitting? What if we don't like what our leaders ask of us? Jesus was in a place where God's will was in conflict with what was easy. He chose to submit to God even knowing it would bring suffering and shame.
Jesus' obedience was required for His to do His work. It was necessary for Hm to live like we live to show us His sinless life, His compassion. Would it have been possible for Him to be tempted in every way if He had stayed I heaven? No. He chose to become like us, with all of our temptations, to show us what He did for us.
Submission in one realm equals rebellion in another realm....follow your God-given government or follow God. Christians, get off the fence.
