President Nelson Powerfully Talks About Jesus Christ’s Feelings for You
As I transcribed President Nelson’s Christmas Devotional Address, I cried. It is that good!
“First, I pray you will feel the deep, eternal love our Savior has for you personally.
“Jesus Christ has known you since the premortal realm.”
He Knows You
“He knows and sees you now. He sees your joys and your sorrows. He has experienced each of them. He has perfect compassion for your struggles and rejoices every time you press forward in righteousness. In good times and bad.
“I pray you will your own personal witness that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He is the Son of God, that he is Filled with Godly power, and that because of His grand atoning sacrifice. You never need to feel that you must face life’s difficult challenges alone.
Seek and Knock
As you earnestly ask, seek, and knock, you have constant access to His power to help you, to strengthen you, and to heal you.
“I pray that you will take full advantage of the Savior’s atonement by repenting daily, making life increasingly pure, and seeking heavenly guidance in all that you do.
“In other words, I pray for you to experience the joy of always THINKING CELESTIAL.
“I pray that you will use this holiday season to begin a season of even greater personal worship.
“Begin anew to study the teachings and the atonement of Jesus Christ.
“No one on this Earth loves you as much as he does.
“No one here understands you better or really knows your sorrows and weaknesses.
“No one on Earth has the power that Jesus Christ has.
“No one here is more eager for you to become everything you can become. No one pleads with the Father on your behalf as He does.
The Prophet’s Witness of Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. He is the Son of God. He is the Holy One of Israel. He is the Anointed One.
Under the direction of the Father, he is the Creator of all that has been created.
Jesus Christ was the Great Jehovah, God of the Old Testament. He was the promised Immanuel. He is our Great Exemplar and our Advocate with the Father. Because of His restored gospel, all of the blessings of His priesthood are available to all mankind as they come unto Him and are perfected in Him.
Brothers and Sisters, let us live in the spirit of “Hallelujah,” ever praising the Lord, Jehovah.
At this glorious Christmas Season, come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord. I know that God lives. Jesus is the Christ. This is His Church. He directs the ongoing Restoration of His Gospel. Of this, I testify in the sacred name of Jesus Christ. Amen
