FEAST ON THESE WORDS
by Carlos Bosque
At the baptism of Jesus, John sees the Holy Spirit descending upon Jesus and declares Him to be “the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world”. The Father filled with joy thunders “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.” It is no coincidence that Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit as the Father spoke His love and acceptance over Him.
Fast forward 40 days and Jesus is fasting in the wilderness and the devil shows up with these words “If You are the Son of God”. He was testing the very words that the Father had just spoken over the Son. As the devil often does to us he leaves off one important fact, that we are “the beloved of God”. Jesus answered him, saying, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” Jesus had been feeding on the word that He was loved and accepted of God.
As you prepare for the Holiday season I encourage you to feast on these words “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. (Jeremiah 31:3)
