(If you don't speak Portuguese I apologize in advance and hope that google translating works :) )
Filho de Homem
Senhor dos Senhores
Rei dos Reis
Santo de Israel
Cabeça da Igreja
Mensageiro dos Convênios
These are just a few of the things that Jesus Christ is for me personally, every moment of every day. I LOVE Christmas and can't help but connect it to my feelings of the atonement and crucifixion during Easter. Because he was born He could die and atone for me and my sins and weaknesses and and sickness and pain. I love a scripture in Psalms 27:1 that says "The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; whom shall i fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" A scripture from The Book of Mormon testifies confirming this "..there is none other name given under Heaven save it be this Jesus Christ...whereby man can be saved." (2 Nephi 25:20) I know these things to be true and I know that through Christ, with Him by my side and in my heart, I am able to do do more and be more than I ever could alone. Neill F. Marriott asks us this: "Can we love Jesus Christ and His way more than we love ourselves and our own agenda?"
I accept Christ's invite to come unto him daily and I allow Him to be everything in my life. Without Him I can't and frankly wouldn't want to do anything. Who is the Savior to you during this Christmas season? What miracles does He work in your life?
I love Christmas and love my family and am grateful to have been taught the ways of the Lord as I grew up. I fear no evil for the Lord is my light! He was born and then died for ME AND YOU. Give Him thanks.
With much love
