“I Found Him”

August 4, 2010 at 11:11 am Leave a comment

Recently I was able to attend the Hill Cumorah Pageant in Palmyra, New York. In the row behind us there was a little girl, who is about 3 years old. She happened to be watching the Pageant with a pair of binoculars. At the point in Pageant when Christ appears, we heard the little girl say, “A’ha, I found him, I found him!” She was so excited to  find Jesus through her binoculars.

This little girl taught me a profound lesson. She was able to find Jesus, because she was looking for him(1 Nephi 10:19, Deuteronomy 4:29, Isaiah 55:6). In fact, she had an extremely powerful tool, the binoculars. How often do we look for Christ in our lives? Too often it seems that we are too busy to find Christ in our lives. When we do find him, is it an “A’ha” moment? Do we truly recognize how often he is in our lives?

One of the ways that we can find Him is by reading the Scriptures-The Bible and The Book of Mormon. When we truly seek, is when we truly find. The scriptures are an excellent tool because the Savior can be found on every page if we are truly seeking him.

Everything around us testify of a divine hand. I know several things, not just the things proven to me by what I see. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. As the Son of God he was able to accomplish several things that we cannot do on our own(Alma 34:8-9,11). First and foremost he suffered and died for each of us. He did this so that we can return to live with God again. Secondly, he was resurrected, so that we will be able to live again.

Hope is not lost if you haven’t found him. The truly amazing thing about the Savior is that he never gives up. He is standing at the door, knocking, and waiting for you to let him(Revelation 3:20). He is not some illusive person trying to deceive us. He is our brother and wants to help us return home.
