Merry Christmas, World!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Today is a very special day.

December 25 is the day that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

He was the promised Messiah who came to earth to show all mankind the way back to God, our Father in Heaven.  His birth, foretold by all the holy prophets, heralded by angels, and signified by the new star, began in the humblest of circumstances.

And yet the heavens rejoiced and we shouted for joy!  The Son of God had been born.  He would show us the right way to live so we could have joy and happiness, teach us eternal precepts that allow us to share that joy and happiness with others, and  pave the way for us to return to that God who is our Eternal Father in Heaven where we can live forever in joy and happiness!

His earthly life culminated with his suffering and death, whereby He paid for all our pains, sins, and transgressions so we can be forgiven if we repent and follow Him, thus enabling us to return to live with our Heavenly Father for all eternity.

And He was resurrected.  Spirit was reunited with the body.  He was the first to be resurrected.  The sting of death is swallowed up in His victory over death!  And His free gift to all is that everyone, regardless of circumstance, will likewise be resurrected!  We will all live forever through all eternity!

This is the good news of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.  The great plan instituted by God, Himself before the world was, has been carried out just as He planned.  And it will culminate just as He designed that it should.  His great plan includes every one of us, His children.  We each have a place in His plan, and in His heart.  Look to your Heavenly Father and He will help and guide you in all things.  Just ask Him for His help.  You can trust Him.  He will deliver you, strengthen you, and show you how you may partake of all of His choicest blessings so that you can live together forever with your loved ones in peace and happiness with Him in His eternal courts on high.  Eternal happiness can be yours!

Merry Christmas.
