The Church of Jesus Christ

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was organized on April 6, 1830 in Fayette, New York.  I was baptized as a member of the church on November 1, 1968.  This past Sunday we were discussing the organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  The  question was posed to each member of the class, "Tell us all, in five words or less, what do you enjoy most in your life from being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints?"

I had to think quickly, as I was sitting on the front row in the very most left hand seat, and was the first to be called on.  My answer?  First,  the Atonement of Jesus Christ.  Second, Temple Blessings.  I couldn't give just one answer.  :)  Of course, the Atonement of Jesus Christ applies to all people, not just members of our church, but my membership in the church helps me to better understand the blessings the atonement brings, and the blessings that I have received in the temple are the culminating blessings just added upon to the blessings of the atonement.

Many answers were given as everyone in the room had their turn.  They were all wonderful answers.   I am very blessed to be LDS, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  The Church provides all the knowledge and all of the saving ordinances that we need to return to live with God, our Heavenly Father, and with our Savior, Jesus Christ.

This morning I was reading the final words of Nephi from The Book of Mormon:

And I pray the Father in the name of Christ that many of us, if not all, may be saved in his kingdom at that great and last day.

2 Nephi 33:12

I someday hope to see you all there!  It will be wonderful!
