The Savior, our Mediator


Please take a moment to read this. The Savior is our advocate with the Father, and how must he plead to the Father in our behalf. And this so that through prayer we may be comforted in trials, may be forgiven, and may return back to the presence of the Father, all by the power of the Atonement. Lehi spoke to his sons of looking to the Savior, the Great Mediator.

"And now, my sons, I would that ye should look to the great Mediator, and hearken unto his great commandments; and be faithful unto his words, and choose eternal life, according to the will of his Holy Spirit; "

May we all look to the Great Mediator, even Christ, who makes intercession for us with the Father, and so gain eternal life again with him.

"Come unto Me..."

May we all come unto Christ, for he pleads to us to "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

"God so loved the world..."


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (http://bit.ly/12NHwk2) Of this truth the Savior said to Peter "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (http://bit.ly/16y1Yey)

The Savior loves us with a love we cannot comprehend. He descended below all things so that we may return back to him and our Father in Heaven again with our families.

May we all take the time to pour our hearts out in gratitude to our Father in Heaven for the gift of his only begotten son, and take a moment afterwards to wait for the Lord's response through the spirit. Then, may we love others as the Savior would have us do.

The Lord Jesus Christ


From Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ: "Jesus is the Living Christ, the immortal Son of God. He is the great King Immanuel, who stands today on the right hand of His Father. He is the light, the life, and the hope of the world. His way is the path that leads to happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come." (The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles http://bit.ly/1bAqOhI

 From the Prophet Joseph Smith "And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives! For we saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father— That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God." (Doctrine and Covenants 76:22-24 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/dc-testament/dc/76.22-24?lang=eng#21 )

We are our Father in Heaven's children


May we remember two things about ourselves and little children. The Savior said:

"Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."

And, now that we are grown, may we all remember that we are as little children when compared to the understanding of the Lord, and often all we have to do to follow him is to reach out and take his hand.

I will Dry Your Tears

"God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes" (https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/rev/7.17?lang=eng#16 ).

Message by Simon Dewey, the artist of this picture "Each of us experience times of sorrowful tears, disappointment, and heartache. As with this little child, Jesus reaches out to us and asks – as he did Mary Magdalane at the tomb – “why weepest thou?” Regardless of the reason for our suffering, He is able to comfort us. The well and the water bucket in the painting symbolize His ability to provide us with Living Water and the early morning light reminds us of the hope that shines after even the darkest of nights. If we will follow the example of this young child, meek and humble, the Savior will encircle us with His love and dry the tears of our sorrow." ~ Simon Dewey

"Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world. And behold, I am the light and the life of the world..." (3 Nephi 11:10-11 http://bit.ly/12Rtrnb). The Savior also said

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Dear to the Heart of the Shepherd

"He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness". — Psalms 23:2

This beautiful green pasture reminds me of the countryside I loved to roam as a boy growing up in England. The path in this painting represents our journey through life, and Christ is on the path watching over us. He is the Savior of all who will accept Him, but most importantly He is the Savior for us individually. In this painting the Savior is caring for the individual lamb while also watching over the entire flock. The healing, comfort, and peace that only He can offer is a gift that is given individually in our lives. More than anything in this image I want people to feel the love and peace that comes from knowing that our Savior is there, watching over us."

Says Isaiah about our day, and the Book of Mormon testifying of the Holy One of Israel "And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

Sharing your testimony

I encourage you to share with your friends the most valuable thing you have, that is your testimony of the Savior. Think of the joy that can come into another's heart who has been longing to find the truth, but hasn't known where to find it. To start off with, I wanted to share a part of my testimony with you. The Savior lives, he is real, and he is active in our lives as we reach out to him. I was just reflecting on this and thinking that my greatest desire is that others might be able to feel of the Love of the Savior as I have, for it truly changes lives. Christ's Gospel is worth more than any of the riches of the world, and it is free to all.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

"We have the gospel of Jesus Christ to shape and guide our lives if we choose it. And with prophets revealing to us our place in the plan of salvation, we can live with perfect hope and a feeling of peace...In all conditions, we can choose the right with the guidance of the Spirit. " Quote by Henry B. Eyring, "Mountains to Climb", Ensign and Liahona, May 2012
 
From the artist, Del Parson, about this painting of the Savior. "While painting The Savior, I wanted to emphasize characteristics such as kindness, purity, and love. The result is an image of a loving Christ that appears to be looking at us in admiration. His subtle smile expresses a wonderful feeling of acceptance. We must remember to see each other as Christ would see us, as friends and children of God with great potential."

How must the Savior pray for us?

Plz take a moment to read this. How must the Savior pray for us? What marvelous things he must ask the Father for on our behalf? "And when he had said these words, he himself also knelt upon the earth; and behold he prayed unto the Father, and the things which he prayed cannot be written, and the multitude did bear record who heard him. And after this manner do they bear record: The eye hath never seen, neither hath the ear heard, before, so great and marvelous things as we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father; And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father" (3 Nephi 17:15-17 http://bit.ly/180Iu2k ).

May we all become trusting, like little children, for the Savior has said, "Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/18.3 )

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations..."

The scriptures are full of references that the Savior is the Savior of the whole earth. What a wonderful reminder of that. His declaration that he is over all and his charge to take the Gospel to others still echoes to us now. "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." May all of us share the gospel more freely with all, respectfully and lovingly. The increase in missions helps the Lord fulfill this charge as many more go out to serve, in whatever place they may be in.

Hands of Heaven on Earth


The Relief Society teaches that the women in our lives are the hands of heaven on earth, and there is no phrase more descriptive I can think of than that to describe the women and mothers in our lives. May we realize the divine nature they have, and show the love to these daughters of God that the Savior would show to them if he were here. For they are righteously raising his children. And to those who have no children. You make such wonderful contributions, and the Lord has promised that if you don't have children here, you will in the next, and that no blessing will be witheld from you in the eternities.
From President Hinckley "wherever you may live, may the windows of heaven be opened and blessings come down upon you. May you live with love one for another. May you reach down to lift up those whose burdens are heavy. May you bring light and beauty to the world and particularly into your homes and into the lives of your children.
You know as I do that God our Eternal Father lives. He loves you. You know as I do that Jesus is the Christ, His immortal Son, our Redeemer. You know that the gospel is true and that heaven is near if we will cultivate it in our lives.”

"And behold, the third time they did understand the voice which they heard; and it said unto them: Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name—hear ye him. And it came to pass, as they understood they cast their eyes up again towards heaven; and behold, they saw a Man descending out of heaven; and he was clothed in a white robe; and he came down and stood in the midst of them.

The Standard of Truth, Prophets, and this Latter-Day Work

In light of recent events "How blessed we are to have been taught by great prophets of God, each with his own unique abilities and experiences, each delivering to us the basic fundamentals we need to guide us through life and prepare us for the eternities to come."

May we all remember that we are in the last days, and that even though the adversary may try, he cannot stop this great work. “The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done” (History of the Church, 4:540).

Lehi Studying the Plates

 May we be as Lehi, and search the scriptures, and find the blessings of the Lord therein.

"And after they had given thanks unto the God of Israel, my father, Lehi, took the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, and he did search them from the beginning.

And he beheld that they did contain the five books of Moses, which gave an account of the creation of the world, and also of Adam and Eve, who were our first parents;

And also a record of the Jews from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah;


And also the prophecies of the holy prophets, from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah; and also many prophecies which have been spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah.
  

And it came to pass that my father, Lehi, also found upon the plates of brass a genealogy of his fathers; wherefore he knew that he was a descendant of Joseph; yea, even that Joseph who was the son of Jacob, who was sold into Egypt, and who was preserved by the hand of the Lord, that he might preserve his father, Jacob, and all his household from perishing with famine.

And they were also led out of captivity and out of the land of Egypt, by that same God who had preserved them.

And thus my father, Lehi, did discover the genealogy of his fathers. " (1 Nephi 5:10-16 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/5.10-16 )

"Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God" (Mark 10:14 http://bit.ly/161bOrT )

The Lord is my Shepherd

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of ddeath, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever." (Psalms 23 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/ps/23 ).

Light of the World

In a world seemingly full of turmoil, the Love of the Savior stretches from before the foundations of the Earth into the eternities and beyond. It never ends. The power of his love can change our hearts, and prepare us to live in the presence of God. Our salvation is his very reason for existence. He is personal enough to know the pains in the quiet chambers of our hearts, and can help transform those into lives filled with Love. He can work miracles in all of our lives, and truly does, if we but have faith and come unto him. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 14:6 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/14.6 ;John 3:16 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/3.16 )

Beside Still Waters, Psalm 23

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of ddeath, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever." (Psalms 23 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/ps/23 ).
