…because of Jesus Christ came the redemption of man.
Mormon and Moroni (who wrote this chapter) were surrounded by death. They witnessed the death of their entire nation. And yet they had hope in Christ.
That’s why I love this statement. Because of Jesus, we will live eternally. The level of our redemption is up to us. We choose how closely we are redeemed to the state where God and Jesus dwell. But He has given us the chance. When this mortal existence gets put into proper perspective, it makes all the dumb stuff seem so small. And it make the really important stuff, like working out our salvation with faith, hope, and charity, become the only thing of importance. I’m so thankful that because of Jesus I can have redemption.
