Day 200, July 17

The truth seems in short supply these days.  Politicians lie to their constituents.  Athletes lie about their drug use.  Media personalities lie to everyone.

So, when I hear the truth, I sit up and take notice.

A week and a half ago, a testimony was borne in our Fast and Testimony Meeting about the living Christ.  The speaker's voice held such conviction that I found myself blinking back tears. 

Christ lives. 

He is not, as some would try to tell us, just a great teacher who lived 2000 years ago.  He is not a mythical character made up so parents can teach their children moral principles.  He is a real Personage who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, make up the Godhead.

So, for today, I am grateful for the truth that Christ lives.

  1. Some of my favorite hymns are I believe in Christ and I know that my Redeemer Lives. So very powerful and I often find myself getting choked up and barely able to sing as we sing them in church.
