Today for my studies about Jesus Christ I looked up the different references in the Topical Guide under Jesus Christ, Mission of. It caught my eye, because I'm on a mission and I thought about how my mission and the Savior's mission are similar in ways. Some of the parts of the Savior's mission include that he was to:
-Swallow up death in victory(Isaiah 25:8).
-Save His people from their sins(Matthew 1:21).
-Fulfill all righteousness(Matthew 3:15).
-Reign over the House of Jacob(Luke 1:33).
-Heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, recover sight, set at liberty them that are bruised. And to preach the acceptable year of the Lord(Luke 4:18).
-Save the world(John 12:47).
-Publish Peace(Mosiah 12:21).
-Redeem His people(Mosiah 15:1).
-Satisfy... justice(Mosiah 15:9).
-Atoneth for the sins of the world(Alma 42:15).
-Bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man(Moses 1:39).
I am so grateful for the life and mission of our Savior Jesus Christ. I am also thankful to be one of His representatives at this time and helping Him fulfill His purpose. Each of us has own mission and plan for our lives. Each one is different, but equally important in God's eyes. I bear you my testimony that Jesus is our Redeemer and only through Him we can have eternal life.
