Because Jesus Christ was resurrected, I will be too.


In the preexistence Heavenly Father told us of a plan to come down to earth, gain a body, be tested to see if we would Choose the Right.

Heavenly Father knew that we would die and not always choose the right. He loved us and wanted to make it possible for us to repent. He knew that someone would have to come to earth to free us from death and pay for our sins. (GAK -240- Jesus the Christ) Jesus loved us so much that He asked Heavenly Father to send Him. He was willing to suffer pain for the sins of all people. He was also willing to give up His life to overcome death. Jesus Christ was born to be our Savior. (GAK – 201- The Nativity)

(GAK – 227 – Jesus praying in Gethsemane) Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane to be alone and to pray. As He prayed, He felt the sins and the sorrows and the pain of all the people who would ever live on the earth. He felt the pain and sorrow for the sins of each one of us. Jesus’ suffering was so great that blood came out of every pore of His body. Because He suffered, we can repent. Jesus chose to do this for us so that if we repent, we can live with Heavenly Father again.

(GAK -230- the Crucifixion) After suffering in Gethsemane, Jesus was put to death on a cross. He suffered, then gave up His life. Because He was a God and had power over death, His spirit left His body.

(GAB – Burial of Jesus (scroll down to see the picture)) -His body was taken down from the cross, wrapped in a clean linen cloth, and placed in a tomb. A huge stone was rolled in front of it.

(GAK -245- The Empty Tomb) On the following Sunday, when women came to anoint Jesus’ body, the stone had been rolled away and His body was not there. He had risen! He had taken His body again.

(GAK -239 – The Resurrected Jesus Christ) Jesus broke the bands of death, after we die, we will also have our bodies again. This is called resurrection.
Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can be saved from our sins if we repent. Because of Jesus Christ, we will be resurrected and can return to live with Heavenly Father again. Jesus Christ loved us and gave His life for us.
