I hope you are all enjoying this Christmas season!
Christmastime has always been my favorite time of year, but as a missionary it is even more special! Being that all we have to do is share the love of Jesus Christ with others, it allows it to be a very sacred time for us (although it´s what we do every day of the year... haha). I have come to truly know the true meaning of Christmas: Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
This year, and every year, we have a reason to rejoice! Because unto us, a Savior is born, which is Christ the Lord.
I testify, as a representative of Him, that He was born, lived, and died, for US. Everything He did was for US. He has shown us the way, He gives us the light to press forward into the darkness, and His way is the only way to gain eternal life. (John 14:6) I testify that He is our Savior and Redeemer, our Advocate with the Father. He has already paid for our sins with His atoning blood, and has already made us free and clean again, if it be that we listen to Him and let Him into our lives. All this He did, that we do not have to suffer, even as He did, which suffering caused Him, the greatest of all, to tremble and bleed from every pore. I know of His love for us. As one of His chosen servants, I feel a part of that love as I share His Gospel with others. I know He loves me, and loves each and every one of you!
I would invite all of you to reflect on the importance Christ has in your life, and make any adjustments you may feel necessary in order to follow him more fully in your individual lives. I promise you will not regret it. I also invite each of you who read this to enjoy the short videos found on: christmas.mormon.org I know that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior.
I hope each of you have a wonderful Christmas and remember the reason for the season.
Lots of love,
Elder Victor Pribyl
