Jesus Christ – Our Ultimate Friend

Jesus Christ – Our Ultimate Friend

New school year 

a time for renewing acquaintances and making new friends
hopefully our friends help us be our best “self”
some use social media to help us stay in contact with our friends (this is not a talk on the appropriate use of social media)

Friend Request

Hopefully we are judicious in the friend requests we extend and those we accept
Christ has already sent us a friend request

“Yea, verily I say unto you, if ye will come unto me ye shall have eternal life. Behold, mine arm of mercy is extended towards you, and whosoever will come, him will I receive; and blessed are those who come unto me.” (3 Nephi 9:14)

As you come unto Christ you come to feel that the only way you can have the happiness you want most in this life and in the world to come is through Jesus Christ. You come to believe these words from the Book of Mormon: “Behold I say unto you, that as these things are true, and as the Lord God liveth, there is none other name given under heaven save it be this Jesus Christ, of which I have spoken, whereby man can be saved.”  (2 Nephi 25:20)


Social media allows us to follow our friends – what they are thinking and doing
Hopefully we will follow Christ throughout the school year
Most if not all of us have made covenants to obey and follow him
Keep commitments  – attend seminary, daily prayer,  scripture study, attend Sacrament meetings, repent as needed, seek guidance through the Holy Ghost


Through social media with the click of a mouse or a touch on a screen we can “like” what our friends post – what they are saying or doing
Liking the Savior requires much more from us than simply giving him a “thumbs up”
As we follow and obey him we develop a desire to be “like” him.  We begin to try to do unto others as we know He would do

Our stake theme this year:“Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness” (Moroni 10:32)
