Day 3 – The 12 Days of Christ – Exemplar

Exemplar

As we understand that Jesus Christ is our example in all things, we can increase our desire to follow Him. The scriptures are full of encouragement for us to follow in Christ’s footsteps. To the Nephites, Christ said, “For the works which ye have seen me do that shall ye also do” (3 Nephi 27:21). To Thomas, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

Today our leaders remind us to set the Savior as our example. Linda K. Burton, Relief Society general president, said, “When each of us has the doctrine of the Atonement written deep in our hearts, then we will begin to become the kind of people the Lord wants us to be.”1

President Thomas S. Monson said, “Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is our Exemplar and our strength.”2

Discussion: What do you do to know Christ?

Kylan – Works on attributes,

Aidan reads scriptures to understand his teachings. He shared with us his testimony that there is always hope. Pres. Uchdorf said a”God promises the hope of His light—He promises to illuminate the way before us and show us the way out of darkness.” 

Kade said he just talks to Him. That touched me.

We came to the conclusion that the only way you can become more like Him is to KNOW him.
