The Love Our Savior Has For Us

The Love Our Savior Has For Us

By: Kade Lately I have been learning a lot about the atonement of Jesus Christ and his impact in our lives. It has really helped me feel the spirit and think more about the Savior throughout these past few months. Something that has always stuck with me is a quote by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, “It was required, indeed it was central to the significance of the Atonement, that this perfect Son who had never spoken ill nor done wrong nor touched an unclean thing had to know how the rest of humankind—us,…Read more …

The Power of Forgiveness

The Power of Forgiveness

by Tommy In the Old Testament, Peter questioned Christ saying, “Lord, how often oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times? The Lord responded saying, “I say not unto thee, Unity seven times; but, until seventy times seven” Sadly, the savior isn’t saying we only have to forgive 490 times.

Then Jesus came saying, "Forgive…Read more …
