Repentance is literally our key to returning to our God. It is a gift from Christ through His Atonement to make sure it is possible for us to have agency and to grow and progress without being permanently lost.
The words of Christ and His prophets are still the most powerful I’ve read. Their words are overwhelming in their truth and doctrine. Testimonies of God, of change, of healing, of progress, and of power fill the pages of scripture.
The greatest love of all is the love of our God – the shared love for us from our Father and our Savior.
We humans are really good at making messes. But in any situation we face, Christ can make things right.
Christ is well-known for His life of love. Everything He did – from meeting people on the street to fulfilling His Atonement – was defined by love. To know how we need to show love, we need to understand Christ’s love. We need to recognize what was most important to Him and how He chose to live because of His most important values.
Let’s reiterate a few things about the prophets of God, and particularly our living prophet, that will be essential for our spiritual safety and well-being in the future.
It seems to me that a person who magnifies Christ’s name in their heart is also someone who knows Christ deeply. It only takes small efforts to help us all magnify His name a little more in our hearts. Here are a few ideas to help us invite Him in more.
Christ shows up in our lives because He loves us and has sacrificed for us. Looking for how He shows up in our lives helps us recognize His love and awareness of us. It helps us see that we matter to Him, even when we fall short or don’t do everything we should.
There are little things that you can do – or might already be doing – that will bring you closer to God, especially when you feel like you don’t measure up or you need to be better.
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of looking back on years like they were miserable and frustrating. I’m tired of the good things always being in some abstract future place that doesn’t exist. I’m ready for joy.
