I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know who I am. I know God's plan. I'll follow him in faith. I believe in the Savior, Jesus Christ. I'll honor his name. I'll do what is right; I'll follow his light. His truth I will proclaim.

I Know that My Redeemer Lives!

Gospel Message Day 97

Christmas Scripture Advent Calendar, Part 30

Day 30 scripture - Helaman 5:12
And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.

The Savior came. He atoned for our sins. He died and was resurrected so we could live again. But we still have to do our part. Our part is to believe in Christ--make Him the foundation of our lives--and follow Him. If we do so, then nothing can shake us. I find that to be quite comforting and reassuring. Because every day I am buffeted by the winds of the adversary. Some days are worse than others. Some times I feel I am not strong enough to withstand the storm. But I have the Savior on my side. If I hold to Him, He'll hold to me. And I can and shall withstand all the ill winds that come my way.

This song is new to me. But I wanted something about building our foundation on Christ and His Gospel and how that helps us.

I love this song, but I hadn't seen the video with clips from the Life of Christ videos. So beautiful! :)
