“Beloved Son”

Chuck Sheridan Avatar

As Jesus was baptized in the Jordan river by John, the Scripture records that “the heavens tore open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.  And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”  Mark 1:10-11

The God of Heaven declared at that moment the full and complete status of Jesus Christ.  “You are my beloved Son.”  Do you realize that God declares that same thing about you when you come to him by faith?  Your status as a child of God is forever completed and sealed by your confession of humble submission to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. 

God says you become an heir through God.  “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.”  Galatians 4:5

Everything God said that day about Jesus after he was baptized, he says about you.  You belong to Him as His child.  Revel in that!
