Reaching Toward The Savior

I receive these kinds of quotes every day, called "LDS Gems" -- and wanted to share this one with you.

"Seeking [the] fruit of righteousness, it is no wonder that we. . stretch with longing and adoration toward the Savior, for we know He extends 'the arm of mercy towards them that put their trust in him'(Mosiah 29:20). Because this glorious promise is true, where else would we look, where else would we reach, where else would we come but to Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, the Lamb of God, our Messiah?

"I know that 'the Son of Righteousness arise[s] with healing in his wings' (3 Nephi 25:2) . . . for each one of us. He would guide and bless and gather us--if we will choose to come unto Him. May we do so every day of our lives."

(Anne C. Pingree, "To Look, Reach, and Come unto Christ," Ensign, Nov. 2006, 115)
