The missionaries recently taught Zach a new member lesson about the plan of salvation. You were gone with Kayla, so I wanted to share with you a couple of things that I really love about the plan of salvation.
First of all, it makes sense. Our life here on earth would be pointless if there was no previous life and no life after we leave this earth. There would be no hope. The plan makes perfect sense and I believe in it with all my heart.
Second, I love, super love that I have already chosen to return to live with my Father in Heaven. You did too. We chose to come to earth to get a body and experience this hard, but joyful life. We chose to follow Jesus! We wanted to have free agency and prove we have what it takes to make it back to Heavenly Father. I love that we got to make that choice and that we both chose Jesus.
Third, thank goodness for the atonement. Life is hard and there are stumbling blocks all around us. I stumble and fall on those blocks a lot, so I am very thankful that I can repent and be forgiven. Jesus is good. Jesus is merciful. Jesus is kind. He wants so badly for us to follow Him and He is going to be pleading with us at judgement to live with Him again.
What a perfect plan the plan of salvation is! I am glad that I have the knowledge I do and that I can share with you some of my favorite parts. I hope you work hard, make good choices and use the atonement in your own life to reach our desire and our pre-mortal choice to return to live with Heavenly Father FOREVER. I can not think of anything happier.
I love you,
