Pillar 3

Right now, because of Adam and Eve, and the continuation of God's plan, we are mortal. God had us forget our life with Him before, so we could grow, little by little, and develop Faith.  The question is now... how do we make it back to our Heavenly Parents and become Immortal? Many people's biggest questions encompass... how do I have a family in this confused world? Without a Savior, the human race would be stuck in mortality, doomed to be restricted by sin, sickness and sorrowful dispositions. Forever "fallen".

It strikes the deepest part of my soul with sadness to think of what it would be like to not live with my earthy family, and be able to return to my Heavenly Father and Mothers' opened arms... The honest question is... after death, what happens next? Earth life is just a pin-prick in eternity, yet our decisions to "Come unto Christ", or to keep choosing Christ like when we were spirits before determine our happiness. The more and more I discover about God, the more I really want to live with Him someday, and I want to live there with the people I love the most. We can be together, forever wrapped in the arms of eternal peace. Jesus Christ makes the journey possible because of His sinless submission to the will of our Heavenly Father. Christ lovingly beckons to us...

"I am the way, the truth, and the Life."

Jesus was the First Born of our Heavenly Father who answered the need. He was born in humble circumstances, long waited for by the ages of the world. God was his Father, and Mary his mortal mother. He lived a perfect life for us to emulate, and then suffered for our sins and afflictions in Gethsemane. He then was crucified, died and was buried for three days. He did what we could not do for ourselves. Then after being laid in a tomb, he came back to life, a Resurrected being. His body and spirit were reunited into an Immortal state, he was the first of the Resurrected. Repentance through His Atonement is the only way by which we can obtain that Family life that exists after death.

“Our Heavenly Father’s plan contains the ultimate expressions of true love. All that we hold dear, even our families, our friends, our joy, our knowledge, our testimonies, would vanish were it not for our Father and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Among the most cherished thoughts and writings in this world is the divine statement of truth: ‘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.’” —President Thomas S. Monson

Jesus Christ can bring us incredible happiness and peace now! ...Not just after death. I can't even begin to describe how much peace applying his example has brought into our family life, and into so many others family lives.  Many of us spend so much time searching for that completing element in our lives, that thing that will bring us peace. Peace and happiness in this life, and Life in the existence to come is found in the Savior. He has establieshed His church which now exists on the earth, as it did in the Savior's time. He is preparing the earth for His coming.

You can hear about other people obtaining peace through the healing power of the Atonement here. Those things that destroy lives and families can be overcome through Him. I know. I am one of many. Miracles have not ceased.

The Love that can be brought into our homes and lives  is the most expansive, loving, incredible, bonding... impossible to describe phenomenon. We all can keep coming to Him, whether we feel we are new to this or are continuing in His path.

WRAP.... WANT His peace, READ His words, ACT on your convictions, PRAY for answers. (Moroni 10: 3-5)

Whether you reach out to "wrap" your arms around Jesus or not, He stands ever ready with his arms stretched out to receive us. Then as you move forward, prepare to be "wrapped" in the arms of His love.
