"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13)
Christ meekly fulfilled the Father's will, both in the Garden and on the Cross, and because of the love he had for us and the Father, "partook and finished [his] preparations to the children of men" (D&C 19:19)
This same Christ had so much love in his heart that he prayed the soldiers who were taunting and crucifying him, would be forgiven, because they knew not what they did.
While in Agony, because of the Love he had in his heart, He had compassion on the malefactor and told him he would be with him in paradise.
He showed then, and he continues to show today how much he loves all, and how he longs for them to come unto him and be healed, strengthened, encouraged, have their burdens lifted, and sins forgiven.
As Psalms 62:8 says, may we pour out our hearts to him, for he is our refuge. He knows our pains, our trials, and will comfort us.
He invitation is the greatest invitation known-from God to us "come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).
May we come to him, and in him find rest. He will ever be there to strengthen us, lift us, and provide help when we need it. Just turn to him.
