Sacrament and the Atonement

 Buenos dias!

How is life in Utah?  'Bout the same?  It's about the same here too!  Talking to everybody, testifying about Jesus Christ and his Gospel, baptizing, learning, growing, change, everything!  I'm loving it!

Something I want to talk about is something I learned when I was studying in The Infinite Atonement by Tad R. Callister.  One thing I realized and learned as I read there was that we will ALL be resurrected and face Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father again in their presence, no matter how sinful you are.  It's one of the "you have to take it" gifts of the Atonement.  We already agreed to it in the beginning.  Because Christ accomplished the Atonement, we will all meet God again face to face, if only for a moment.  That's what the Atonement does. It makes us "at-one" with God, whose presence we left. A reunion that is only made possible through the Atonement of Jesus Christ because we are unclean and "no unclean thing can dwell with God."(1 Nephi 10:21)  The question is though, will you stay?  Will you want to stay in his presence.  All who don't merit eternal life and the Celestial Kingdom will not want to be there and "the very thought of coming into the presence of their God will rack their souls with inexpressible horror." (Alma 36:14)  Yeah.  I've been thinking about that.  If we honestly partake of the sacrament every week, remember Christ's infinite sacrifice, we are showing God and testifying to everyone there in sacrament meeting that we are sinful people and need help or in another word,a savior. We are saying we will do better this coming week and become closer to what God wants us to be.  I took the sacrament yesterday with this new attitude in mind and felt my sins be washed away again.  My soul was sanctified through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. The great thing about the sacrament also is that we can do it EVERY SINGLE WEEK.  How's your attitude taking the sacrament?  It can be the most spiritual part of your week if you let it. I have some advice for you all: LET IT.

Love you all.
