Well Pleased

Jesus was just getting ready to start his ministry.

He hadn’t done any miracles yet.Oct 22 2015 Well pleased

He hadn’t talked about what he was going to do on earth.

He hadn’t shared any good news of love and forgiveness yet.

That didn’t matter.

When John baptized Jeus, the heaven opened up and God’s voice from heaven said, “This is my Son whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” ( Matthew 3:17)

Jesus was God’s son and God was pleased with him!

Jesus hadn’t ‘done’ anything yet.

He was God’s son and God was pleased with him.

Let’s rest on that fact for a moment…..

take a deep breath……

and feel the love of God pouring over us……..

hear the voice of God in our souls saying, “This is my child whom I love.  In them, I am well pleased.”

It’s not about what we’re doing for God.

Its about his love for us.

When we accept the salvation offered by Jesus, we are adopted by God.

He loves us not because of what we do for him.  He loves us in spite of our sin and rebellion and disobedience.

For God so loved the world.

Thank you, Abba Father.
