Christ “Became the Author of Eternal Salvation unto All Them That Obey Him”

Hebrews 5:8–9

8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him . . .

President Thomas S. Monson said:

“No greater example of obedience exists than that of our Savior. Of Him, Paul observed:

“‘Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

“‘And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him’ [Hebrews 5:8–9].

“The Savior demonstrated genuine love of God by living the perfect life, by honoring the sacred mission that was His. Never was He haughty. Never was He puffed up with pride. Never was He disloyal. Ever was He humble. Ever was He sincere. Ever was He obedient.”
