Faithful Sunday

Happy Easter! Since I was late on my Faithful Friday post, I thought I'd just wait until Sunday...What better day than Easter (and Christmas) to talk about FAITH?

A little video (less than 8 minutes long) representing the last few days of Jesus' life.
Bible Videos: He Is Risen
He is risen!

“The clarion call of Christendom,” President Thomas S. Monson has declared, is that Jesus of Nazareth rose from the dead. “The reality of the Resurrection provides to one and all the peace that surpasses understanding” (see Philippians 4:7).

“Our Savior lived again. The most glorious, comforting, and reassuring of all events of human history had taken place—the victory over death. The pain and agony of Gethsemane and Calvary had been wiped away. The salvation of mankind had been secured. The Fall of Adam had been reclaimed.

“The empty tomb that first Easter morning was the answer to Job’s question, ‘If a man die, shall he live again?’ To all within the sound of my voice, I declare, If a man die, he shall live again. We know, for we have the light of revealed truth. …

“My beloved brothers and sisters, in our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for he is risen.’”


A great resource to teach children about the events of the Resurrection is found here: He is risen-He lives

 

I believe that Christ lives. He died for us, then was Resurrected to break the bonds of death for all mankind. Christ lives and loves me, and He loves you. I am very grateful for this knowledge, for the Atonement, and for our Lord's plan of happiness. I know that I can repent, utilizing the Atonement, and return to live with my Father in Heaven. I have faith to carry on, endure to the end (though the road be long and treacherous), but pray for guidance and support through this journey we call life. My Heavenly Father grants many blessings upon me and my family, and I feel His love the more I make righteous choices and decisions-choosing to learn His Gospel and to look heaven-ward for divine guidance.

I love you, my awesome stalkers, and wish you the very best Easter with your family and loved ones!
