"And behold, I am the light and the life of the world; and I have drunk out of that bitter cup which the Father hath given me, and have glorified the Father in taking upon me the sins of the world, in the which I have suffered the will of the Father in all things from the beginning" (3 Nephi 11:11 http://bit.ly/12Rtrnb ).
Because he drank the bitter cup, the Savior is the light and the life of the world. He is our Savior, our Redeemer, and the only way back to our heavenly home. He is ever there for us, there to comfort us, and there to strengthen us in our trials, for he understands any trial we may be called to go through.
May we seek Christ out, learn of him, as the scripture says, and follow him, as he beckoned in another scripture. He stands with open arms waiting for us, and will ever be by our side, as our prophet has said.
He is real, and as the angel said, He is risen. May we reach out to our God, the Resurrected, Glorified Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, and through the spirit, find peace in this life, and be able to embrace him and have life eternal in the world to come.
The first scripture is from the Book of Mormon, where Christ appeared to the people of the Americas after he was resurrected. You can read the promise of the Book of Mormon online here http://bit.ly/10t8QYm and pray about its truth, or get a free copy by going to http://bit.ly/11WKJ1G
