Matthew 3: 17 (NIV)

17 “And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him, I am well pleased.”

  On reading Matthew 3, we come to realize that the Lord Jesus was on his way from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John. When John saw the Lord, he tried to deter him by saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” To which the Lord Jesus said, “Let it be so now; for thus, it fits for us to fulfil all righteousness.”

As Jesus went through the water and came out, the heavens opened, and the Spirit of God descended like a dove and alighted on Jesus Christ. We then see the Father saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him, I am well pleased.” We desire to have the consciousness of Christ in our own lives.

Like, babies, we see our reflection in the mirror but still do not recognize who we are in the Lord Jesus Christ.


Lord, we want to pray for a consciousness of the Lord Jesus Christ in our own lives. Draw us near to You Lord and help us grow spiritually. In the name of Jesus, Amen!

I say I am a Christian wife, an Author, Radio Presenter, a Blogger, a mother, and stepmother, a granny, and a Data Capture and Personal Assistant. I absolutely and unconditionally love the LORD my God, and my husband and children. I love to write devotionals about the Word of God – the Bible. I like to incorporate my feelings and understanding in my blogs. We all face challenges don't we, and for me, it is just as difficult as for the next person. I also get frustrated and irritated and cry, and after everything I have tried, I turn back to God. I seem to learn the hard way, just like a little child always wanting to try it myself before I ask Daddy for help. I would say that I am a people's kind of person, I feel their pain, and I love to laugh with them. I always aspire to see the very best in people, never judging and still considering what they might be facing as people there and then. On meeting people, I always place them in the highest bracket on my scale. I believe the very best of each person. I do hope you love reading my blogs and seeing what I am doing on my web page. In the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I bless you.
