More than 2,000 years ago, God sent Jesus Christ to be our Savior. Jesus Christ was born to save us from our sins, born so we can be born again and return to live with God someday. Let us rejoice greatly this Christmas season, for unto all of us #ASaviorIsBorn.
On this 3rd of December 2015 I am humbly grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who created a plan of happiness for each one of us. We all chose in a previous life to follow the Savior, Jesus Christ and accepted this plan. We knew that coming to earth would not be a cake walk but rather a test of our faith. How is your faith in Jesus Christ?
This plan would allow us to receive a mortal body and gain experiences to help us journey through life on earth. We knew that we would face temptations from the evil one to sin and falter. But we also knew that experiencing sin and evil we could feel and see good and righteousness as an opposite way of life.
We knew that our testing period on earth would be endured more easily if we turned to the Savior, Jesus Christ, who was sent in our behalf to atone for our sins and overcome spiritual death. We knew that He would be persecuted and hung upon the cross to overcome physical death. We knew that he would resurrect and LIVE again!
I testify that I know my Redeemer Lives. I know that He loves each one of us and offered the ultimate sacrifice. His life was one of perfect obedience to the father in all things.
As the Christmas season is upon us, may we take the time to reflect often what Christ has done for each one of us.
I am committed this month to take time each day and thank our Heavenly Father for the gift of His son, Jesus Christ and reflect upon our abundant blessings. This is my gift back to them. Please share this video if it lifted your spirit this day!
