Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and residue of wickedness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.3 [The words that He speaks to us are spirit and life, imparting the life of God to us as His spoken words are engrafted into our heart. If you humbly believe and obey the words that you hear Christ speak to you, they are engrafted into your heart, fulfilling the scripture: I will put my laws into their hearts, and I will write them in their minds (inward understanding). Heb 10:16. From the Word of the Lord within: "You must obey every law the Spirit establishes."]

Hebrews 5:9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 9 And being made perfect, he [Jesus] became the author and source of eternal salvation to all those who heed and obey him;1 [Salvation is to be delivered (freed) from all sin, even the desires, through persistent obedience to the Spirit that mortifies the selfish human spirit on the inward cross of self-denial. You must persistently and patiently wait for Him in silence to hear his commands, as you listen and watch; then heed and obey Him. From the Word of the Lord within: "You must wait on the lord to receive salvation. Salvation comes to those who wait. Salvation comes to those who heed and obey. You will know the truth when you see Jesus bring your salvation. Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God."]
