Jesus’ ministry started from a position of security! God told Jesus that “You are my Son, whom I love, with you I am well pleased!” This took place before Jesus had taught, healed, discipled, performed miracles etc. God loved Him and was pleased with Him for who He was and not for what He had done. The great thing is… the same is true for us. God loves us for who we are, faults and all, not for what we have done for Him!! We can start each day from a place of security knowing we are loved, valued, appreciated, special, wanted and important to God.
