Spiritual Thought: The Character of Christ – Elder Bednar

This was too good not to Share!

My Husband’s Nephew is currently serving a Mission and sends him weekly E-mails. On this weeks E-Mail was a reference to a talk gave by Elder Bednar which he described it as “the single most inspired and inspiring, insightful and thought-provoking address” he had ever seen and would recommend that everyone watch it. Well I watched it and agreed. Oh How Moving it was. The Character of Christ is most certainly something all Christians should be concerned with. But this moved me so much that I spent half an hour in tears.

There was so much in the talk but what struck me most is the capacity to see others needs whilst suffering our own trials. While The Saviour had fasted 40 days & been tempted by Satan, Angels came to minister but Jesus knowing that John Suffered sent Angels to minister to John. The Saviour even in his own hour of need thinks of others before himself.

The Saviour has set the example to Look outwards to others before looking at our own inward needs. After all The Saviour said:

JST, Mark 8:38

[Joseph Smith Translation]

But whosoever shall be willing to lose his life for my sake, and the gospel, the same shall save it. 

Surely that is what Alma meant when he said: “…..as ye are desirous to come into the fold of God, and to be called his people, and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light

Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death….. [Mosiah 18: 8-9]

It’s inspired me and I hope you too can gain Inspiration from this Sisters and draw nearer unto the Saviour.
