Thoughts of Christ

It is almost Easter--the time of year when Christians all over the world celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior. It is a holiday that is truly worth celebrating, pondering, thinking about and changing our lives because of what it means. This is a touching video/summary of what I and many others reflect on when we think of Christ:

Jesus unlocked the gates of physical and spiritual death so that we might live again. All will be resurrected--wicked and righteous, male and female. This is possible because of the Atonement and resurrection. Jesus Christ is my example, my mentor, the reason I do the things I do.

I am continually amazed by His eternal and infinite gift--which without, all would be lost. Because of Christ, we have hope. We can change. We can "become." I am humbled to realize that He would not only sacrifice all for us, but has also paid 100% of our debt to justice. If we just want to be with Him, we really can. It is up to us. As I explained in my last post about grace, we are all saved by grace, but doing our part makes it possible--we will only be comfortable with our Savior if we have tried to become like Him.

I am so thankful for the healing and enabling power of the Atonement. It is beautiful. I wish more people could understand and use the Atonement in their lives--and not just to receive forgiveness, but also to be healed, to do all things through Christ. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." (Philippians 4:13). He will strengthen us as we rely on Him, trust in Him, have faith on His name.

I personally have increased hope, faith, determination and love because of my Savior Jesus Christ. I love Him. I want to be like Him. I want to tell other people about Him so they, too, can be happy and experience lasting joy. I am strengthened and lifted through His power. I can't wait for the day to return to be with Him again. I am continually striving to be ready for when He comes again.

I love this added testimony for Elder Jeffrey R. Holland. Please watch and feel of the love the Savior has for you.
