Baptism in the Jordan

This is the first story after the Nativity in most of the Gospels. Jesus goes to the Jordan where John is baptizing and asks to be baptized. John then says to Jesus “It is I who should be asking to be baptized by you”.  Nevertheless, John baptizes Jesus and from the heavens comes a voice “This is (You are) my beloved son, with whom I am well pleased” along with a dove. This is same event happens at our baptism we become the Sons and Daughters of our heavenly father, and he is pleased with us. I hope that this is something that we keep in mind during our lifetimes as we often forget that we are that beloved child of the heavenly father and that he is pleased with you and me.
