When it comes to the importance of Jesus Christ in our lives as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there are many reasons why we hold Him in such high regard. From His teachings and example to His Atonement and Resurrection, the role that Jesus plays in our lives is truly remarkable.
Teachings and Example
One reason that Jesus is so important to us is because of His teachings and example. Throughout His life, He taught us how to live with love, compassion, and empathy for others.
He also showed us how to have faith in God and trust in His plan for our lives. As members of the LDS Church, we strive to follow these teachings and examples every day.
Perhaps the most significant reason why Jesus is important in our lives is because of His Atonement. Through His suffering in Gethsemane and on the cross, He paid the price for our sins so that we may be forgiven. This gift is available to all who repent and seek forgiveness through Christ.
Scripture Reference: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
Another reason why Jesus is important to us as members of the LDS Church is because of His Resurrection. After He died on the cross, He was resurrected on the third day. This event gives us hope that we too will be resurrected after we die.
Scripture Reference: “And now I have told you before it come to pass, that when it is come to pass, ye might believe.” – John 14:29
The Atonement and Resurrection also make it possible for us to have eternal life. By following Jesus and accepting His Atonement, we can be forgiven of our sins and receive the gift of eternal life in God’s presence.
- Scripture Reference:
- “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” – Romans 6:23
In conclusion, there are many reasons why Jesus Christ is important in our lives as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. From His teachings and example to His Atonement and Resurrection, He is truly a remarkable figure who has changed the course of human history. As we strive to follow Him and live according to His teachings, we can find peace, joy, and fulfillment in this life and in the eternities to come.
