This is why I want to serve

My life is full of rich and happy blessings because of the knowledge I have of this gospel. I am so grateful for the Atonement and the sacrifice that Jesus Christ, my Savior and Redeemer, performed for all of us. I want to abide in Him always and I will trust in my Heavenly Father in my every decision and have faith that He will guide me with His Holy Spirit to the people ready and waiting to hear this message of Christ. 

Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd. He knows us all by name and He wants to rescue each one of us. I want to follow His example to help him herd these lost and wondering flocks. We all matter to Him, we are all worth it to Him. I have been lifted up and encircled in the loving arms of Jesus Christ's love and I  hope that as a diligent servant of the Lord, I can help others also feel this love.

I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that the things written in this book are written for our time. The words are powerful and healing. As I have read and immersed myself in this book, I have gained my testimony of it's truth. Heavenly Father used these prophets of old to teach us today and He continues to use a prophet to share His love and messages with us. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet on the earth today and I know He is the Lord's called servant. 

My heart is just brimming with love and happiness. It's a happiness I can't keep to myself. I know these things are true. I have felt the peace and warmth and comfort of the Spirit tell me that these things are true. I am so blessed that I have this opportunity to devote my time to the Lord, and to become an instrument in His hands. Heavenly Father is a loving and merciful God. He wants all His children on earth to return to Him in righteousness. I hope I can help bring people unto Him to rejoice in the things of this Gospel.
