Because of Christ’s Atonement, I can repent and live with God again.

March 2013 - Week #2    

When I don’t mind my parents
And want to have my way,
I soon feel very sorry
For things I do and say.
And so I ask forgiveness
To show I really care.
I talk to Heav’nly Father,
Who always hears my prayer.

I love my Heav’nly Father
And earthly parents too.
They want to be forgiving
For wrong things that I do.
If I keep trying harder
To live the way I should,
I’ll turn away from evil,
Repent, and seek what’s good.

Jesus Christ is our Savior. This means that he paid the price for our sins. This is called the Atonement. Jesus suffered and died for us so that we can return to live with Heavenly Father again. In order for us to be able to use this great gift, Jesus has asked us to repent when we make a mistake.  We repent by feeling sorry for the wrong that we have done and promising Heavenly Father that we won't do it again.

I am thankful for my Savior, Jesus Christ and that he was willing to die for me so that I can repent and live with Heavenly Father again.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
