Pure Love of Christ

(one of my favorite pictures of my Husband on his mission in Brazil)

 God wants us to be a doer of His word and not a hearer only.

The best way to show the love of Christ is by example.

When you are willing to get out there and serve someone else,
you forget about yourself and all the problems you have in your own life.

You learn to focus on what others are going through in their lives
and doing so sometimes your problems are very small compared
to what they are going through.


Here are some scritpures on Charity that I love:

 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your
good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16

Knowledge puffs up, but charity edifies, 1 Cor. 8:1

Charity, a pure love, excels and exceeds almost all else, 1 Cor. 13

See that ye have faith, hope, and charity, Alma 7:24

Clothe yourselves with the bond of charity, D&C 88:125

Let thy bowels be full of charity, D&C 121:45

I love what Russell M. Nelson says in an article of the Ensign

Paul’s counsel, “Be thou an example of the believers,” applies equally to all of us.
 Each of us can be an example of the believers. Brethren, as followers of Jesus Christ, each of you can live in accord with His teachings. You can have “a pure heart and clean hands”; you can have “the image of God engraven upon your [countenance].”  Your good works will be evident to others. The light of the Lord can beam from your eyes. 
What are some of the trials or challenges that you are facing right now in your life?
Pray and ask Heavenly Father to place someone in your path that you can help.
Then see what happens and see how you feel.....

That is a really cute picture. Everyone looks happy. When we serve, it's true, we bring happiness to others and it then, in turn, benefits us with the same joy.
