I fasted today and thoroughly enjoyed testimony meeting at church. I felt so strongly about Jesus Christ and how He is the Savior of the world. He wasn't just a man that did some nice things.. He is literally the Son of God, the only Begotten. Jesus Christ was and is completely perfect. He is our example and our elder Brother. His birth and his time on Earth still affects every single one of us, even 2000 years later! He atoned for the sins of all mankind. Jesus is the Christ. He knows what we go through.. and He is there for us! I am grateful to be made whole and clean because of Jesus Christ and His sacrifice and the ordinance of the sacrament. "Come unto Christ and be perfected in Him.." There is peace, light, and hope because of Him. A Savior is born, so that I can have joy in this life and the next. It's incredible! I rejoice in the comfort of a Savior. To learn more, head on over to christmas.mormon.org and watch the videos!
This evening, I had the amazing opportunity to be one of the hosts at the temple lights! I loved it! The Spirit is so strong because it is truly dedicated grounds. I loved seeing all the people with their families.. having a great time admiring all the displays and beautiful Christmas lights. There isn't anything quite like it. You need to head down there, if you haven't already! I loved chatting with the sister missionaries, too. It was a perfect way to end my Sunday night.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK and remember the Savior in all that you do. --Alec Marie
