A guilty man set free on account of another.
Is that Justice?

Occaisionally you experience something that rings true. You read something in a book, hear it on the radio, watch it in a movie, or experience it with another person. Ever wonder why it ‘rings true?’ I believe it’s the Spirit whispering it to you, letting you know what you are witnessing, experienceing is part of the eternal truths we all know deep down.

I was recently shown a video that asks the question i wrote at the top of this post. It’s a video that was obviously put together to bring people to Christ. What a day we live in! There are so many ways to help people find the gospel and bring them closer to His love. This video is an incredible expression of love. Someone spent a lot of time and effort working to put it all together. The story is what gets to me, good fiction.

I don’t know what particular Christian sect Caleb and Sol follow. They are the ones who created the video. In the video I hear much of the importance of making a decision and believing in Christ, but oh how important it is to lead a Christian life AFTER you have decided to follow Him.

Watch the video here:

Or you can go directly to YouTube.com:

After you watch the video, please remember what Nephi said, “For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.” – 2 Ne. 25:23 Italics added.

An easy road it would be if all we had to do was state our belief in our Savior and not have to worry about repentance. Unfortunately all of the prophets, and the Savior himself spent hours and hours teaching and preaching the importance of repentance and working diligently to stand clean before Him – always. The only way to do that is to continually repent.

A guilty man set free on account of another.
Is that Justice?
No, that’s Grace. After all we can do…

Daily we fall. Daily we need to humble ourselves and ask our Father to forgive our mistakes. Weekly we need to take the Sacrament, remember that it is only by and through Christ that we can return to God. Then work hard and do all we can to be clean before Him.

What will you do?
What will you do?

Surrender yourself, work to stand clean before Him. Allow His love to permeate you – and become His.

Yours,
Bishop Chatham
