Well this week has been a great one! First off, sorry for not writing last week things just got a little hectic. Well this week was lots of preparing Lisa for her baptism! She was baptized on Saturday and it was the most amazing thing to see somebody change their life and come to Christ and to feel of His love more promptly in their life! It truly testifies of the of Heavenly Fathers gift to us (the Atonement). It truly is an amazing gift that we are given and to use it in our everyday life is even more special!
8 And now, behold, I will testify unto you of myself that these things are true. Behold, I say unto you, that I do know that Christ shall come among the children of men, to take upon him the transgressions of his people, and that he shall atone for the sins of the world; for the Lord God hath spoken it.
9 For it is expedient that an atonement should be made; for according to the great plan of the Eternal God there must be an atonement made, or else all mankind must unavoidably perish; yea, all are hardened; yea, all are fallen and are lost, and must perish except it be through the atonement which it is expedient should be made.
10 For it is expedient that there should be a great and last sacrifice; yea, not a sacrifice of man, neither of beast, neither of any manner of fowl; for it shall not be a human sacrifice; but it must be an infinite and eternal sacrifice.
Later in the Book Of Mormon it testifies that Jesus Christ did come to the Nephites and Showed himself to them!
3 Nephi 11:12-17
12 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words the whole multitude fell to the earth; for they remembered that it had been prophesied among them that Christ should show himself unto them after his ascension into heaven.
13 And it came to pass that the aLord spake unto them saying:
14 Arise and come forth unto me, that ye may thrust your hands into my side, and also that ye may feel the prints of the nails in my hands and in my feet, that ye may know that I am the God of Israel, and the God of the whole earth, and have been slain for the sins of the world.
15 And it came to pass that the multitude went forth, and thrust their hands into his side, and did feel the prints of the nails in his hands and in his feet; and this they did do, going forth one by one until they had all gone forth, and did see with their eyes and did feel with their hands, and did know of a surety and did bear record, that it was he, of whom it was written by the prophets, that should come.
16 And when they had all gone forth and had witnessed for themselves, they did cry out with one accord, saying:
17 Hosanna! Blessed be the name of the Most High God! And they did fall down at the feet of Jesus, and did worship him.
I know the blessings come from using the Atonement in our life every single day! I am truly grateful that Heavenly Father sent is only begotten son to this earth to die for the Sins of the world and that we can through Jesus Christ we can return to live with our Heavenly Father again!
Still Want to Here from lots of People!
