This last week we’ve had the opportunity to share the Church’s 2016 Easter video. I love how each narrator shares his or her testimony of the Saviors redeeming sacrifice. Each one of them knows that through Christ all who have lived will live again.
I just want to add my testimony. Both my Grandpa and my Grandma Cross have passed away.
One thing I know and take great joy in sharing is that because Christ was resurrected, we too will be resurrected and will again see those that we love.
I know with certainty that I will see my Grandma and Grandpa again. I will talk with them. I know that through Jesus Christ we can find new life. Because of His sacrifice we can rejoice and sing ALELUIA!!!!! I love my Savior. The sacrifice he made for each one of us so can bring us joy. There is no need to sad at the death of a loved one. We can know that with each loss comes new life. With each fall we can get up again and continue on in faith. I know that through Christ and his atonement, our Father in Heaven will make everything right.
Like the testimonies that came before, in Jesus Christ I have found new life. You can too. As a representative of Jesus Christ, I testify that He lives and loves each and every one of us. I rejoice in knowing that his gospel has been restored here on the earth. I am a part of its growth! I know that through His sacrifice all of us may one day return to live in His presence and in the presence of our Heavenly Father. I know that even though I do not see all of my future, the Lord was a wonderful future planned for me and for each of us. We need only find Him and follow Him to know that future. I testify of these things in His sacred name, Jesus Christ, Amen.
May your Easter Sunday be full of joy and happiness!
