Even though Jesus was in Heavenly glory with the Father, it was obedience that led to His glorification above all things that ever existed.
He took the place of a servant as a result of obedience (even thought He is God).
At the garden of Gethsemane, He chose obedience over His human feelings.
It is clear that one benefits of obedience is glorification but another great benefit is the divine strength which you receive to accomplish it. Sounds like a good deal to me; He gives me an assignment, but He help you to complete it! (through the power of the Helper).
We can truly understand the essence of obedience if we desire spiritual growth. So that we wouldn’t need to be taught the benefits of obeying the Lord but we will rather exhort others(young ones) to obey Him.
