Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Heavenly father loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ to the earth to be our Savior.
John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Believing in Jesus means that we follow his example and obey his teachings, and that we try to do good and act as he would want us to.
We can follow Jesus’s example by being baptized, helping others, and sharing the gospel with our friends.
Jesus taught us to love other people. I’m trying to obey him by being nice to my brother and thinking of things that he would like instead of being selfish and only thinking of myself. Also, I am going to work harder at home to do what my parents want me to do. Jesus always did the things he knew his parents wanted him to do. Sometimes I wait too long to obey. We can follow Jesus’s example by obeying right away and not putting off doing what’s right.
I know that doing these things can be hard, but that when I do them, I will have the blessing of feeling Heavenly Father’s and Jesus’s love and that will make me happy. I know that you can be happy when you obey Jesus and follow his example too.
In the name of Jesus Christ,
