Reaching out for just one person

Happy 4th of July!

light some works for me, yeah? ;)

This morning I was studying in Mosiah 18. This chapter talks a lot about the baptismal covenant that we make and its so beautiful!

8. And it came to pass that he said unto them: Behold, here are the waters of Mormon (for thus were they called) and now, as ye are desirous to come into the fold of God, and to be called his people, and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light;

9. Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life-

10. Now I say unto you, if this be the desire of your hearts, what have you against being baptized in the name of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a covenant with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you?

30. ...how beautiful are they to the eyes of them who there came to the knowledge of their Redeemer; yea, and how blessed are they, for they shall sing to his praise forever.

Are we living our lives so that one day when we come to the judgment bar with Jesus Christ, we are ready to say confidently, when he asks, "do you know me?", say, "yes."?

One day, when we come to the presence of our brother Jesus Christ, I know without a doubt all of us are going to be so in awh! Because no matter what he´ll be there with his arms ready to embrace us. I know that if I could chose anyone in the world to judge me when the time comes, that sincerely Jesus Christ is the only person that can. Because he knows me and he knows my heart, perfectly. The same for each of you as well.

I love these scriptures so much because if everyone can be there reaching out for just one person, then we can all be able to feel Gods love through someone.

I know that God loves us. I know that He wants the best for us and that it is never too late to turn around and try better. I know He sent us His perfect son, Jesus Christ, to be our example, to follow him, and to become the best person that we can be within ourselves. I know that service to others builds an inner confidence between our relationship with us and our Heavenly Father. And I know that we are given trials to literally become better at something, to throw our hand out in service and to mourn with those that mourn. I know that at times it will be hard to have that spiritual desire to serve and love reading the scriptures and pray, but I know with all my heart, that in those times, when we do those things, we will feel stronger and more able to lift others around us and in so doing, God will lift us.

I love you all so much, and Im missing the 4th of July vibes! But I really do hope you all are having a great week and that you're having lots of laughs! Haha
