“She’s My Hero!” (Matthew 3:16-17)

“I want to acknowledge my daughter, Sally. Ever since she was young, she always had a heart for others. On our missionary trips, when I would be wary of the challenging conditions, she was the one always encouraging our team and bravely taking the lead. She has a servant’s heart!”

She paused, waiting for the words to sink in. “She’s my hero!”

What a lovely tribute this mother gave to her daughter! As she lovingly looked at her daughter, every parent in the room identified with the pride she felt toward her own child. It was her retirement party yet she shined the spotlight on her daughter. 

When Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased.” 

Matthew 3:16-17 (CSB)

When Jesus Christ allowed Himself to be baptized, God honored Him by speaking aloud to all who were witnessing the event. It was God the Father’s plan to send His Son to reconcile a broken sinful world to Him and yet He shined the spotlight on His Son. Like my friend’s daughter, Jesus had a servant’s heart!

The love that parents have for their children is a manifestation of the eternal love God, the Father, has for God, the Son, Jesus Christ. While we will never fully understand the depth and nature of this love, we are given a glimpse of this love with our own children. We may not all be blessed with children of our own, but if we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are all adopted children of God. God loves us with the same love that He has for His Son, Jesus Christ. He honors us by His grace and mercy, bestowing upon us a love, undeserved, but secured through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

Praise God!

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
