“Do you want to be happy? Forget yourself and get lost in this great cause. Lend your efforts to helping people. … Stand higher, lift those with feeble knees, hold up the arms of those that hang down. Live the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
Living the gospel of Jesus Christ is faith, hope, and charity in action. It is the pure love of Christ for others and selfless service. If anyone thinks missionary work is only for missionaries, think again! We can all do a little better to invite members and nonmembers alike to come closer to their Savior and to get to know Him personally. I am so grateful for the Savior in my life and for all the times He has strengthened me. I know that He loves us and is proud of us. We don't have to be anything more than we are now to be worthy of His love, but we are guaranteed to feel it in greater abundance as we continuously repent and hearken to His teachings.
You are all wonderful and I know that God is aware of you wherever or whoever you are. He cares for you and is reaching out to you this very day.
Have a wonderful week! Aloha!
