MATTHEW 3:16-17 NLT | “AFTER HIS BAPTISM, AS JESUS CAME UP OUT OF THE WATER, THE HEAVENS WERE OPENED AND HE SAW THE SPIRIT OF GOD DESCENDING LIKE A DOVE AND SETTLING ON HIM. AND A VOICE FROM HEAVEN SAID, “THIS IS MY DEARLY LOVED SON, WHO BRINGS ME GREAT JOY.””
The Holy Spirit knows those who are His. And, you are very fortunate to be one of Her children, chosen from the foundation of the world to bring delight, praise and glory to God’s name.
It’s a selection borne of love, and is the sole reason you are where you are in God today. Her love for you will not relent. She will continue to nurture you until She presents you to the Father, as His begotten child. “…On the day when I act in judgment, they will be my own special treasure. I will spare them as a father spares an obedient child. (Malachi 3:17 NLT)
You are chosen by the Holy Spirit and begotten by the Father. You are a special priesthood, a peculiar nation, a glorious people, called out into His marvellous light. The difference will always be clear for all to see. Bliss be with you.
