This time of year, we often reflect on the Savior's Atonement, His death, His crucifixion, and His resurrection. But it's also important to remember that none of those would have been possible without His undying love for us.
As Elder Ronald A. Rasband recently shared on Facebook:
You are a son or daughter of a loving Father in Heaven, and His love remains constant. I know that such reassuring feelings of love are difficult to recall when you are in the midst of personal struggles or trials, disappointments, or broken dreams.
Jesus Christ knows about fierce struggles and trials. He gave His life for us. His final hours were brutal, beyond anything we can even comprehend, but His sacrifice for each one of us was the ultimate expression of His pure love.
No mistake, sin, or choice will change God’s love for us. That does not mean sinful conduct is condoned, nor does it remove our obligation to repent when sins are committed.
But do not forget, Heavenly Father knows and loves each of you, and He is always ready to help.
