In Matthew 2 Jesus was a child. In Matthew 3 he is 30 or so. What happened in the intervening years? That is a lot of years! The scripture doesn’t give the details. But the last verse gives a clue.
And behold, a voice out of the heavens said,
"This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.”
The first 30 years of Jesus life were years of pleasing His Father. He pleased His Father at 10 years old. Think of it! He pleased His Father at 26 years old. Think of that! Jesus always did what was pleasing to His Father! It didn’t begin when His ministry started. This is a good aspiration for all of His followers. For me! Today is a good day to please the Lord! That may mean not pleasing myself. This verse came to mind.
Trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
A great aspiration for the day! For my life. Please Him!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
