Often a time, I have stopped to wonder why our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross on Calvary. Simple. Because he loves us sooo much that he was willing to die for us.

Then there are those nights where I am kneeling by my bed, feeling heavy with sin. Why would Christ want me to repent of my sins? Simple. Because he loves me and wants me to be happy.

Why would The Shepherd leave the 99 sheep and find the 1 lost sheep? Simple. Because he loves his flock and wants each and every one us to return to him.

Jesus Christ, our beloved Brother and Son of God, gave us the atonement so we can repent and find a way to get back to him and our Heavenly Father.  He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane because he wants us to come back to him. He felt all the pain we could ever feel to save us. 

And why should I follow him? Why should I use the power of the Atonement to repent and be forgiven of my uncleanliness? Simple. Because I love him.

He's there. He loves you. If you ever need comfort or wisdom, just pray and ask. Because he loves you, and he wants you to return to him in heaven. 

 

Because he loves you.
