And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17 NIV
I am bringing up this verse for reason. We know Jesus is the Son of God. Most people long for the approval of their father. Growing up, if I let dad down, it hurt. I wanted his approval.
Jesus had just been baptized and a voice came down from Heaven and proclaimed, ” This is my Son! I love Him! I am pleased.” The best part is: He says the same to us when we are saved and became part of the Body of Christ!
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love hepredestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. Ephesians 1:4-6 NIV
This one of my favorite passages. Before He created the world, he chose us to be Holy and blameless and sinless in His sight. Out of Love, he predestined us to being adopted through Jesus Christ. He loves us as much as He loves Jesus. So let us make Our Heavenly Father happy. Amen!
