(Matthew 3:16-17 ERV) So Jesus was baptized. As soon as he came up out of the water, the sky opened, and he saw God’s Spirit coming down on him like a dove. (17) A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the one I love. I am very pleased with him.”
(Matthew 17:5 ERV) While Peter was talking, a bright cloud came over them. A voice came from the cloud and said, “This is my Son, the one I love. I am very pleased with him. Obey him!”
(Matthew 7:9-11 ERV) Do any of you have a son? If he asked for bread, would you give him a rock? (10) Or if he asked for a fish, would you give him a snake? Of course not! (11) You people are so bad, but you still know how to give good things to your children. So surely your heavenly Father will give good things to those who ask him.
(Matthew 6:26 MSG) Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.
Through Jesus, We Can Become Children Of God
(John 1:11-13 ERV) He came to the world that was his own. And his own people did not accept him. (12) But some people did accept him. They believed in him, and he gave them the right to become children of God. (13) They became God’s children, but not in the way babies are usually born. It was not because of any human desire or plan. They were born from God himself.
(John 14:7 ERV) If you really knew me, you would know my Father too. But now you know the Father. You have seen him.”
(Romans 8:31-32 ERV) So what should we say about this? If God is for us, no one can stand against us. And God is with us. (32) He even let his own Son suffer for us. God gave his Son for all of us. So now with Jesus, God will surely give us all things.
