President Nelson Shares What Being in the Savior's Presence Will Feel Like: "You Will Be Overwhelmed to the Point of Tears"


Many have wondered about the day they stand before their brother and Savior again. Will we be ready? What will we experience? How will we feel?

Recently, President Russell M. Nelson answered these questions on Facebook, sharing that we don't need to wait until judgment to be in the presence of our Savior.

"In a coming day, you will present yourself before the Savior. You will be overwhelmed to the point of tears to be in His holy presence. You will struggle to find words to thank Him for paying for your sins, for forgiving you of any unkindness toward others, for healing you from the injuries and injustices of this life.
"You will thank Him for strengthening you to do the impossible, for turning your weaknesses into strengths, and for making it possible for you to live with Him and your family forever. His identity, His Atonement, and His attributes will become personal and real to you.
"But you don’t have to wait until then. Choose to be one of His true disciples now. Be one who truly loves Him, who truly wants to serve and lead as He did."
