Easter is also a great time to reflect on the way Christ lived His life and do our best to follow in His footsteps. As you look at Christ's life, you see many acts of love, kindess, mercy, and forgiveness, along with many miracles. He showed perfect faith, obedience, patience, and so much more. Our Savior is our perfect example and we should be striving every day to live as He lived and walked as He walked. Thomas S. Monson once said, "Physically walking where Jesus walked is less important than walking as Jesus walked." We must put forth our full efforts into modeling our lives after our perfect Savior and walking as He walked. We won't be perfect, but we can come close.
So this Easter and during this session of general conference, I challenge you to reflect on the life of our Savior. Push yourself to do better, to live the way He lived and remember Him always. To follow his perfect example and become more like Him. I challenge you to remember His atoning sacrifice and the eternal love He has for you. Remember that no matter how alone you feel, there is always someone who understands you and truly knows what you're going through. Remember that one day we will be able to overcome death because He overcame it; we will be ressurected and lifted up to be with our Heavenly Father forever. Remember that there is life after death. And remember, He is Risen.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
