Thought

For those of my family and friends that don't know, I just got a new calling as one of the Relief Society teachers. Well, yesterday was my turn to teach. My topic was Lesson 19 out of the Gospel Principles book which was on Repentance. As I was preparing my lesson I couldn't help, but be struck by an important principle as I read various quotes. Numerous times it talked about not thinking of Repentance as a commandment, but instead to think of it as a privilege and a divine gift. I honestly can say that I have never thought of repentance in that light before. I always thought of repentance is something we need to do in order to be cleansed from our sins and enter into God's presence. But as I continued to read and ponder and prepare for my lesson I understood why it is a divine gift and a privilege. We had a Savior come into this world to prepare the way for each of us. He suffered so much pain that none of us can comprehend. But He did that so we could have this gift and privilege of repentance. I know I for one will be thinking of repentance in a new light from now on.
