Moses 5:9, 15

9 … I am the Only Begotten of the Father from the beginning, henceforth and forever, that as thou hast fallen thou mayest be redeemed, and all mankind, even as many as will.

15 And as many as believed in the Son, and repented of their sins, should be saved; and as many as believed not and repented not, should be damned; …

Such an important principle about the Savior’s Atonement. Being saved and redeemed is conditional. It is only available to “as many as will,” those who “believe and repent.” Love is not all you need. We each play an important part in our redemption. 

Since resurrection is not conditional, everyone will receive it. But the ironic thing is that it will probably be a joyful experience relative to how much we believe and repent. 

If we have taken advantage of Christ’s gift of overcoming spiritual death, overcoming physical death will make us happy. If we have not been able to overcome spiritual death, overcoming physical death might feel more disappointing. That’s what it means to have a perfect recollection of our guilt. 

The best solution? Believe and repent now so the conditional and unconditional gifts of the Savior will cause us to rejoice.
