What Now?

We have now been born onto this earth, and we are in a bit of a mess. Because of the Fall of Adam we are all mortal. At some point, every one of us is going to die, and that means losing the body that we wanted so badly before we came here. We also are free to choose, and because of that every single one of us sins and becomes unclean. In 1 Nephi 10: 21 we read that " unclean thing can dwell with God;" This means that we can't return and live with our Heavenly Father again. Physical and Spiritual Death are major obstacles in the Plan of Salvation, and they are something that we cannot overcome by ourselves.

So what is the point of being here? Is there anything that we can do? We can get answers to questions like these from the scriptures. Alma 34: 32 tells us "For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors." We are here to prepare ourselves to meet God, by learning from our choices. We have to choose to make the right choices and repent when we make the wrong ones.

Heavenly Father knew the Fall of Adam would happen, so he prepared a way for us to return to him. He planned to sacrifice his Only Begotten Son, and make it possible to Overcome Physical and Spiritual Death. I am grateful for a Father who loves all of us enough to do this and I know this is true.
