Hebrews 2:10-11

The suffering attribute:  So often we think of the attributes of Jesus as described in vs 9.  But here we see the attribute "perfect in suffering" which produces in Him the ability to sanctify.  If sanctify means "the process by which we transform into Christ like holiness in our daily walk", how does Christ’s suffering empower our sanctification?  Luke 22:39-23:49 is a good example.  Suffering helps us put the important things first and the trivial things peripherally.  Jesus’ example of suffering in the events leading up to and including the crucifixion become an amazing example to us of obedience to God in the hard times.
