We Live From Acceptance, Not For It

In Matthew 3:16-17 it tells us as soon as Jesus was baptized he went up out of the water. At that moment the heavens departed and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove. A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I am well pleased.” Think about this for a second. Jesus hasn’t even begun His ministry here on earth. Yet his Father was saying I love you and I am pleased with you! Jesus hadn’t delivered any great sermon, healed the sick or raise the dead to life! God pores out acceptance before Jesus did a thing.

Can you hear the Father saying to you this morning, ” I love you.” There is nothing you can do to earn it. No service you can provide to receive it. Thank God for His grace! We live from His acceptance, not for it.
