When I considered starting a blog to share my faith with others, I had a few ideas for a name. Ultimately, I decided on “We Preach of Christ” because sharing about our beliefs in Jesus Christ was the sole purpose. The phrase comes from a verse of scripture in The Book of Mormon, “we are made alive in Christ because of our faith. … And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins” (2 Nephi 25:26).
Faith in Jesus Christ blesses my life each day. It blesses our home and our family. But faith in Christ does more than bless our lives. It is an essential part of our path back to God. It comes with the promise of immortality and eternal life. Immortality, or a state of endless life beyond the power of death, comes as a result of Christ’s resurrection and is a gift to all. Eternal life, or the blessing of living with God and our families forever, is also made possible through Christ’s Atonement. The promise of eternal life requires obedience to God’s laws.
