Over the weekend we had the awesome opportunity to speak in two different wards with two different topics. It is so great being able to see the members and for them to see us. We love being involved in the wards as much as we can. I talked about repentance and forgiveness and this was an awesome scripture from the Book of Mormon:
6 Wherefore, redemption cometh in and through the Holy Messiah; for he is full of grace and truth.
7 Behold, he offereth himself a sacrifice for sin, to answer the ends of the law, unto all those who have a broken heart and a contrite spirit; and unto none else can the ends of the law be answered.
8 Wherefore, how great the importance to make these things known unto the inhabitants of the earth, that they may know that there is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, save it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the Holy Messiah…
I love this because it also talks about missionary work along with the hope of being forgiven of our mistakes and sins. This promise applies to all of us. Regardless of “how far we think we have gone” and how little hope there may be, through Jesus Christ, all of us can be redeemed and brought back into the presence of God again.
Have a great week everyone!
