The story of Jesus’ baptism in Luke 3:15-22 ends with beautiful words from Heaven: “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” It is indeed wonderful for any of us to imagine these words coming from God, but in this story, they are about Jesus. Can we experience freedom from our craving for approval and instead see God’s approval of Jesus as a firm foundation for life and love? Even in the midst of our failures, Jesus will still be our Messiah, the one who dwells among us as a testimony of God’s deep love.
