In his Christmas devotional message in 2010, President Eyring reminded us:
“Many of you will in the Christmas season find ways to give food to people who are hungry. As you do, you bring joy to the Lord. Yet He taught us that there is a way to give an even more priceless and lasting gift. He said, “I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” With all the kindnesses we give for Him, the greatest we can offer is to point those we love and serve toward Him, the only source of eternal life.”
Pointing those toward Christ has never been easier, there are several options for you to consider in this month’s previous ten minute missionary assignments, or for those who need more ideas, this week’s assignment is to click on the link below and to read this short, one-page article while you ask God the question “who can I share one of these 10 ideas with.”
I testify that the message of our Savior is in fact “glad tidings” that can bring peace and joy to the soul. God’s love for us was indeed manifest in sending His Son to the earth, because through Jesus Christ we can have great joy and can find eternal life. Jesus’s miraculous birth was immortalized by his triumphant atonement and because of Him we can surely be Merry this Christmas.
