First Presidency Devotional Recap - President Uchtdorf

President Uchtdorf gave a wonderful message about finding Christ, not only in Christmas but throughout the whole year through. This part of his talk was so inspiring to me:

"This is a season of rejoicing! A season of celebration! A wonderful time when we acknowledge that our Almighty God sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem the world! To redeem us!

It is a season of charitable acts of kindness and brotherly love. It is a season of being more reflective about our own lives and about the many blessings that are ours. It is a season of forgiving and being forgiven.

But perhaps most of all, let it be a season of seeking the Lamb of God, the King of Glory, the Everlasting Light of the World, the Great Hope of Mankind, the Savior and Redeemer of our souls.

I promise that if we unclutter our lives a little bit and in sincerity and humility seek the pure and gentle Christ with our hearts, we will see Him, we will find Him—on Christmas and throughout the year."

What a beautiful statement and promise to each of us. It is also my hope and prayer that we all find Christ this Christmas season and carry that continual search into out daily lives.
