The True Source: Jesus Christ


Today during Stake Conference, President White, our 2nd counselor in our Stake Presidency,was sharing 2 Nephi 25:26 in his talk:

 "And we atalk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we bprophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our cchildren may know to what source they may look for a dremission of their sins."
 My mind kind of stopped on the reference  of "source" and how Jesus Christ is our source for a remission of our sins and everything else.

 Then in my mind's eye I saw a photo from one of my blog posts with the word "SOURCE" underneath to identify where that picture originated from and who it's true author was. See the example above.

Out of my own curiosity I looked up the synonyms for "source" to help me understand more about how Jesus Christ is our true source .  I was amazed at how much meaning and depth it brought to the scripture by just understanding all the different meanings of that word.  I didn't know it meant so many things.

These were some that I found: author, authorship, begetter,expert, fount, father, informant, parent, specialist, starting point, wellspring...

Each one of those words applies to Christ and who He is and can be in our lives, if we look to Him.

I am a very visual learner, so I put together some pictures to help illustrate how the Savior is our true source. [Make sure you click on source.]

For a remission of our sins

In our faith growing and being sustained

In Prayer

In being directed and guided,
He is our light

 In our joy

In our marriages

In our Families

In the food we eat and depend on daily

In the beauty of His creations

In our daily spiritual feasting of the scriptures

In the saving ordinances and covenants
 available in Holy Temples that will allow us
 to return to live with Him again someday
