Our Savior's Love

Love is something we all naturally seek for.
Whether loving approval from peers and family members, 
or the tender longings of that one who holds your heart.
It is a natural desire for us as humans to find that love.

The purest love that ever has been manifested 
is the Love of our Heavenly Father giving His Perfect Son,
Our Savior Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. 
 “Surely he hath borne our griefs, 
and carried our sorrows” 
-Isaiah 53:4
He, though sinless, paid the price for our sins.
He felt the weight of our weaknesses, mistakes and injustices,
from every paper cut to every heartbreak.
He did this so He could succor us or, literally run to our aid.
He showed us the greatest love, the purest love.  

Charity: The Pure Love of Christ
It is the highest, noblest, and strongest kind
 of love and the most joyous to the soul

The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that 
"...to have faith in God unto salvation we must have 
a correct knowledge of His attributes and character."

"The love of Christ passeth all understanding..."
-Ephesians 3:19

There is nothing that we can do 
that would make Him love us any less
"...Wherefore they scourge Him, and he suffereth it; and they smite Him, and He suffereth it. Yea, they spit upon Him and He suffereth it, because of His loving kindness and His long-suffering towards the children of men" 
-1 Nephi 19:9  

There is no where you can go where the infinite 
light of Christ's atonement cannot reach
His Love is INFINITE 
"Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to 
separate us from the love of God which is in Christ our Lord..."
-Romans 8:39 
Because of His love we can return to live 
with Him and our families forever
His love is ETERNAL
After being visited by the Savior at the time of the Restoration of the 
Gospel of Jesus Christ and priesthood authority, he describes his experience:
"...that earth, nor man, with the eloquence of time, cannot clothe in language as interesting and sublime a manner as this holy personage. Nor has this earth power to give the joy, to bestow the peace, or comprehend the wisdom which was contained in each sentence..."
-Testimony of Oliver Cowdery  

We are to search the scriptures and seek Him earnestly in prayer and immerse ourselves in the truths of His Gospel
 His love is LIFE CHANGING 
"Filled with His love, we can endure pain, we can quell fear, forgive 
freely, avoid contention, renew strength and bless and help others."
-Elder John H. Groberg

 Let His love, reach you and pentrate you. You will find eternal peace.
"...Perfect love casteth out all fear."
-Moroni 8:16 

Our Savior's love
Shines like the sun with perfect light,

As from above

It breaks thru clouds of strife.

Lighting our way,

It leads us back into his sight,

Where we may stay

To share eternal life.
