Often during the season, people ask the question, "Are you ready for Christmas?" to which Elder Bednar replies "I don't think the question is, 'Are you ready for Christmas?' The question is 'Are you and I ready for Christ?'"
In an address given to a group at BYU, Elder Bednar asked those attending to ponder the gifts of Christmas. He said,
"The Father's gift to us was His son. The gift from the Son to us is His atonement. Perhaps the only thing that we could give Them is a growing conviction, a deepening conversion of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and what it means in our lives. Perhaps the only thing we could give would be a more diligent desire and commensurate study, to not just know about the atonement, but to know Him who brought the atonement and to more fully understand the blessings of the atonement in our lives."
Let us continue with our THANKSGIVING All through the Christmas Season!
