Jesus’ Names (4)

We read in Luke 1:35b that the angel told Mary, “The baby will be holy and will be called the Son of God.” Mary’s son was Jesus, the Son of God. Jesus was with God before the world was created (John 17:5). Jesus has always lived and will continue to live forever.
Our Bible Reading tells us that when Jesus was ready to begin His ministry, He went to the Jordan River. Jesus asked John to baptize Him. After Jesus was baptized, God spoke from heaven. He said (verse 17b), “This is my Son, the one I love. I am very pleased with him.”
John 3:16a says, “Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son.” This tells us that Jesus is God’s only Son. But through Jesus, we can become God’s sons and daughters, too. John 1:12b says about Jesus, “…some people did accept him. They believed in him, and he gave them the right to become children of God.”
I hope you are God’s son or daughter. Thank Him today that you are part of His wonderful family.
