My Testimony of Jesus Christ

In compliance with the last wishes of my Grandmother before she passed away, (Thursday, April 12 2007), to help with the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ; I have creating this blog for those of faith to help promote the spreading of the "good news." The good news of which I speak is that Jesus Christ lives and has infinite love for us! This blog might start out with testimonies of family members, however I would like anybody of a sincere heart to post their convictions of Jesus Christ and any who have questions to post those as well. (A testimony is an outward expression of inner convictions comprised of feelings and experiences.)
I would like to start out with my testimony.
My testimony is that I know that Jesus Christ rose from death through the power of resurrection and that He lives today and is willing to manifest His power in our lives. I know that He loves us intensely and waits anxiously for the time when we will give our lives to Him, so He can bless us by giving us inner peace and happiness in the middle of this tumultuous world. His doctrine is so simple, a child lives it without even knowing. It is to love one another. To forgive all. To be submissive, meek, humble, patient, and full of grace and charity to all men. It is true that He taught other doctrines that must be fulfilled in order to live with Him again, such as faith, repentance, and baptism by water and fire; but if we will start at this fundamental principle, He will lead us in the proper direction and to the proper representatives. I know that Jesus Christ lives! Through Him I have found comfort and release from my sins and know He will remove all obstacles to my happiness as I continue to strive to be like Him. I know that His gospel is about love and family. I know that through His power my family is bound forever beyond the grave if we live as He has taught. What an indescribable peace comes over the soul who in Christ resides! He bought us with the price of His life and offers us a place with Him if we will learn to follow His teachings as best as we can. I leave this testimony with all, in the hallowed name of Jesus Christ.

I would also like to share my Testimony of Jesus Christ.

I know that Jesus Christ Lives. He is the Son of God. His death and resurrection make it so we will all live again. His suffering for our sins in the Garden of Gesemane makes it possible that our sins may be forgiven.

I know that when we live our lives as he has taught, he will be there for us through the difficult times in our lives. He is the source of peace and in this world we live in is often the only source we may look to for peace in our lives.

It is as He taught, "If any man do His will he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself." I have tested this statement and I do know for myself that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of the world and that peace comes by following his Doctrine.
