Elder Jason Elquist, June 1st, 2015

So last week was a good one, we may not have taught that many lessons but by us going out and working as hard as we can we showed the Lord that we are willing to do anything for him.   So this Thursday I get to go and baptize Michelle. She was my investigator that I was teaching in my last area. I am way excited about that.  I have learned that there are tender mercies happening all the time for us. Just the fact that we wake up every morning is a tender mercy. We just need to retrain the way we think and see to be able to understand that no matter what Jesus Christ is helping us along the way.  He wants us to achieve anything and everything. 

I know that no matter who you are and what you have done the Savior Jesus Christ has his arms wide open and is just waiting for you to run to Him. Sin is so evil that you have to run, just like how Jesus taught that principle upon principle. Satan is trying to get you to keep stacking your sin so high that you feel like you can not repent. But we are stupid to think that Christ died on the wooden cross for all the sins and that we cannot repent.  Who are we to say that Christ will not let us repent?  How dare we speak for the perfect speaker, How dare we limit what Christ can do? I challenge all you guys to take Christ atonement and use it in your lives. Christ did not just die for us to repent, He suffered all matter of pain and affliction so He can know how to help us. In the name of Jesus Christ our savior and redeemer, Amen
