In John 11: 25-26, the Lord said: “I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.”
Christ did for us what none of us could do for ourselves…Our joy at this season is because He came into the world.
We have sung "Joy to the World" and felt the comfort of the Spirit testifying of these truths. Jesus came to overcome the world. As we follow his teachings, obey his commandments, repent and take advantage of His Atonement, we really can find joy, no matter our circumstances.
