- Our Father’s plan for our happiness and our salvation is shared by our missionaries throughout the world. Not all who hear this divine message accept and embrace it. However, men and women everywhere recognize its truths, and they plant their feet on the path that will lead them safely home. Their lives are forever changed.
He speaks of Jesus Christ's central role in the plan. He speaks of things that we need to do to make the plan more meaningful in our lives. Doing these things will lead us to true, eternal happiness.
- Essential to the plan is our Savior, Jesus Christ. Without His atoning sacrifice, all would be lost. It is not enough, however, merely to believe in Him and His mission. We need to work and learn, search and pray, repent and improve. We need to know God’s laws and live them. We need to receive His saving ordinances. Only by so doing will we obtain true, eternal happiness.
Because we have been blessed to discover these truths, we have an obligation to share it with the world. We all need to live it, share it, and bring the truths of our Heavenly Father's plan to all those we come in contact with. Bringing this truth into peoples lives makes us partners with God in bringing about his ultimate goal, eternal life for us all.
- We are blessed to have the truth. We have a mandate to share the truth. Let us live the truth, that we might merit all that the Father has for us. He does nothing save it be for our benefit. He has told us, “This is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.”
He concludes with his testimony of the great plan that our Father has for each of us.
- I testify of the great gift which is our Father’s plan for us. It is the one perfect path to peace and happiness both here and in the world to come.
There is a plan of happiness for each of us. God is not there to make us miserable or punish us for our mistakes. He is a loving Father who's ultimate goal is to have us return and live with Him again in eternal glory. I am grateful to have this knowledge and to know that He loves us and wants what is best for us. Peace in this life and eternal glory in the life to come is only granted to us by our Savior. I hope we can all learn to love the Savior more, and share this plan of happiness with all those we come in contact with.
