"You are my beloved Son." -- Matthew 3:17
On the day of your baptism and mine no one saw anything extraordinary, but in reality the sky did open and the Spirit of God did come upon us and say, "You are my beloved son/daughter."
Our baptisms weren't very different from that of Jesus'. What might be different is what happened after. Jesus "went about doing good." (Acts 10:38)
The majority of us have to keep asking ourselves if we are doing good. Fortunately, we can begin each day as though we are newly baptized. And there is so much good we can do. Each of us continues to be God's beloved son/daughter.
