His Father spoke over Jesus, “This is my beloved Son….” Through the Sacrament of Baptism, we, too, become the beloved ones of the Father.
Dear Jesus, reveal to me what it means
that I am a beloved child of God.
No matter my choices or sin,
the nature of being beloved is the only way
you and the Father see me.
Show me what it means to love myself as you love me.
Pray with the account of the baptism of Jesus from Matthew 3:13-17. What is Jesus saying to you about your own belovedness?
