What has Jesus Christ done for you?

What has Jesus Christ done for you?
.
Some of you may be struggling with this question. You may wonder if Christ even exists or you know he exists but you may feel He doesn’t bother to comfort you.
.
Why should you return to Church activity? People are cold to you; you don’t feel welcome, or maybe you see people who are hypocritical in their day to day activities. It simply could be that the Church just doesn’t meet your needs. Maybe you’ve read literature from outside sources that you find contradicting. There could be several reasons.
.
With all the reasons you may have, what do you expect to receive from Jesus Christ, from His Gospel, from participating in His Church?
.
The social experience at Church can be pleasant, but you’re going to be disappointed if that’s the reason you’re attending sacrament meeting and other class instruction. I don’t know what to tell you. If your sole motivation for going to church is socialization, you’re wrong and need to reconsider the purpose.
.
Reconsider what Jesus Christ has done for you. Did Jesus Christ Atone for His sins? Think about that—Was His purpose on this earth for Himself? Did He come to this earth to socialize and entertain Himself with the desires and will of man? When He was mocked and ridiculed, did He stop teaching His Gospel? Was He offended?
.
What has Jesus Christ done for you? Are we that selfish that we “serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly” (Rom. 16:18).
.
You went inactive—so what. Come back! Christ didn’t leave you, quit on you, or turn you away. So don’t do it to Him. He knows there are cruel and selfish people amongst His fold. Did He quit when Judas betrayed him?
.
Christ NEVER gave up on you. He NEVER will give up on you.
.
He loves you. Don’t be offended and give up because you feel betrayed. Christ pressed forward after Judas betrayed Him. He completed His Father’s will. He atoned for our sins and was resurrected. We have eternal life through Him only!
.
The guy who wrote the anti-literature you read, did He provide a plan for your eternal happiness, or was His plan for you to fight the Church of Jesus Christ the rest of your days and prove it wrong? Hear Him and come back!
