As soon as Jesus wasbaptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and hesaw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voicefrom heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” –Matthew 3:16,17
It’s good being God’s kid. I’m not really one that gets extremely wrapped up in the emotional sideof my faith too much; but it’s hard to avoid some pretty strong emotion when Istart thinking about the idea of God looking down at us and being pleased. Of course, sometimes we fall really short ofpleasing Him. But it’s a great feelingknowing that because I have given my life and my heart to His service that Hesees my life and is pleased.
If you’ve given your life to Christ He sees you and feelsthe same way. You’re His son or Hisdaughter and He looks on and says, “I love you, I am well pleased.”
Just a thought to think on next time you’re feeling unlovedor underappreciated.
