In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” Mark 1:9-11

There is a rich mine of comfort, in these words, for all Christ’s believing members.  In themselves, and in their own doings, they see nothing to please God.  They are daily sensible of weakness, shortcoming, and imperfection in all their ways.  But let them recollect that the Father regards them as members of His beloved Son Jesus Christ.  He sees no spot in them.  He beholds them as in ‘in Christ,’ clothed in His righteousness, and invested with His merit.  They are ‘accepted in the Beloved,’ and when the holy eye of God look as them, ‘He is ‘well pleased.’ – J.C. Ryle
