The Pasco Stake Presidency would like to “invite” all members of the Pasco Stake to join us in 2014 in “daily” Centering our Life on Christ. As a Stake Presidency we have prayerfully considered for some time what the Lord would have us focus on in 2014. We believe that by daily Centering Your Life on Christ, members of the Stake will be greatly blessed individually and as families.
Helaman 5:12 states…. “And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that “when” the devil shall send forth his mighty winds,….He shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built”. That foundation is Christ.
Quoting from a talk by Elder Richard G. Scott from the April 2013 General Conference entitled “For Peace at Home”, he states “Many voices from the world in which we live tell us we should live at a frantic pace. There is always more to do and more to accomplish. …. Be certain that every decision you make, whether temporal or spiritual, is conditioned on what the Savior would have you do. When He is the center of your home, there is peace and serenity. …..As you center your home on the Savior, it will naturally become a refuge not only to your own family but also to friends who live in more difficult circumstances.”
We invite you this next year to daily look for ways to daily pattern your life after Christ, focus on becoming more Christ like, or work on developing a Christ like habit. These can be simple things that don’t take a lot of effort or time and you can choose those things that you feel that you would like to work on. But after combining your daily efforts all year long, the Savior can take your sacrifice and magnify your efforts and will bring great blessings to you individually and to all those you have served or inspired.
As a Stake Presidency, we testify that this will be a great blessing to you and to your family.
