My favorite Scripture verse is Mark 1:11 which were words God the Father spoke to the Son Jesus: “And a voice came from heaven ‘You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.’” It strikes me that Christ’s identity as a beloved son who pleased his father was confirmed before he even started his ministry. Now, because of what Christ did in my place, I have can have the same relationship with the Lord despite my deeds of failure and sin. I am from a little town in the panhandle of Florida called Niceville. It is famous for Danny’s Fried Chicken and being very close to Destin’s beautiful white-sand beaches. I love sitting in a cafe with a good book and or out on a walk with my wife Kendra.
