I feel impressed to share with you my deep and abiding love for the Son of God, the Savior of the world, the Great I Am, the Mighty High Priest, the Risen Lord, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, our Savior Jesus Christ. Because of Him I am made free. Because of Christ I am cleansed from past sins and transgressions. I love my Savior. I really do love Him.
I think of Him as my Elder Brother, I picture Him as my Best Friend, and I regard Him as the most Sacred Being, next to God the Father. He is the reason I can still smile after failed attempts to be perfect. Without His Infinite and Eternal Sacrifice, I would cease to ever have a chance at being completely cleansed and sanctified. Oh how my soul rejoices when I think of Him! If I could, just for a moment, be wrapped in His arms......what joy would fill my soul. Just simply picturing Him walking towards me puts me in tears. I love Him, I have loved Him long before this life, and I will FOREVER LOVE HIM!
This Christmas time is a great way to show Him my love. So I do, in a small way, share this testimony. Maybe somebody will someday read it, and as a result, become more aware of His sacred role as the Only Begotten of the Father. When you do (person who reads this testimony), be it unto you that I, Daniel Thomas Armstrong, know of a surety that Jesus Christ lives. That He is an Infinite and Eternal Being, full of grace and truth. That He not only knows me, but He also knows you. He loves us, and because of that love for us and His complete obedience to the Father, He came to earth as a humble babe, "wrapped in swaddling clothes." Might you find Him, and if you have found Him, never lose sight of Him. Ultimately, all who will reside in the Celestial Kingdom someday, will be those who have chosen to be there; by their works, their faith, their repentance, and their obedience to the ordinances and covenants they have received.
I so testify, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
