The Bible teaches us something of great import. A favorite scripture is found in John 3:16. “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.” How thankful I am for the Savior. I was deep in thought today and my mind turned to the love I feel for Jesus Christ. It is by and through Him that we can overcome the weaknesses we have and the mistakes we make.
When I was a little boy I wondered how it was possible that this Jesus could take away the wrongs that I make. I can honestly say that at 40 years old I still wonder how He can do that. The logistics of His precise part and how it all works in the Plan of our Heavenly Father are complex but I know it is real. I do know that His distinct role will cleanse us because I have experienced it repeatedly in my own life. I enjoy the peace that comes because of Him.
The future is bright! Through continued practice, some of life's lessons get easier. I am thankful for my life as I keep moving forward always learning from my mistakes. I will always be indebted to the Savior for all that He has done.
