“You are my son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
This week we continue our teaching series that considers what it means to live lives that provoke questions. In this talk, we’re going to put this declaration of the Father about Jesus right into the foundation of Jesus’ understanding of himself. How did this affect how he lived his life and conducted his ministry?
What would look different in your life if you could hear these words spoken over you? Was this just God the Father addressing God the son, uniquely? Or does this reveal something of the heart of God towards you and me too? What would be transformed in the knowledge that God loves you, specifically, that your being in this world causes Him pleasure?
***Spoiler alert, I think a deep revelation of this would result in change that would cause our friends to start asking some questions.
