OUR HEAVENLY FATHER LOVED OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST SO MUCH THAT BEFORE HE WAS LED BY THE SPIRIT TO BE TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL, HE SAID, “THIS IS MY SON, WHOM I LOVE; WITH HIM I AM WELL PLEASED.”
(Mat 3:17, 4:1) And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.
PRIOR TO CHRIST’S CRUCIFIXION, THE FATHER AGAIN SPOKE WHEN HE WAS TRANSFIGURED AND SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, “THIS IS MY SON, WHOM I LOVE; WITH HIM I AM WELL PLEASED. LISTEN TO HIM!
(Mat 17:5) While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”
IT IS SO HUMBLING TO KNOW THAT THE FATHER LOVES US AS HE LOVED HIS SON.
(John 17:23b) “May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
AND BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT LOVE FOR US, HE GAVE US HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.
(John 3:16) “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
GOD MANIFESTED HIS LOVE TOWARD US WHEN HE SENT HIS SON AS AN ATONING SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS.
(1Jn 4:9-10) “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”
HE MADE CHRIST WHO HAD NO SIN TO BE SIN FOR US, SO THAT IN CHRIST WE MIGHT BECOME HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. TODAY, IN CHRIST, WE ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.
(2Cor 5:21) God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
