Luke 3:22 KJV: And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee, I am well pleased.
Before Jesus ever did anything concerning his ministry on earth, God was already pleased with him. Meaning that it wasn’t because of his actions that God was pleased with him. He was eternally pleased with him because he was his son.
If God can see Jesus in a man, he will be pleased with that man. Man cannot please God, therefore, man needs Jesus in order to please God. That’s why Jesus says that no man comes to the Father except through him. John 14:6
In another scripture, he says that if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away and new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5: 17 When you allow Christ to come into your life, everything will become new. You will be reconciled back to the father and by that singular action, God will be pleased with you.
Rejoice therefore that Christ is the reason God is pleased with you and give glory to his name. Also, come boldly into his presence and have fellowship with him so he can guide you through life and help you fulfill your God’s purpose for this life.
Declare to yourself loud: Christ is my light. Hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, I am grateful for making me at peace with God. Keep me forever in your sight. In Jesus Name. Amen.
