In His mercy, God promises forgiveness when we repent and turn from wickedness—so much so that our sins will not even be mentioned to us. For us, because of the Atonement of Christ and our repentance, we can look at our past deeds and say, “’Twas I; but ’tis not I.” No matter how wicked, we can say, “That’s who I was. But that past wicked self is no longer who I am.” - Dale G. Renlund, “Latter-day Saints Keep on Trying,” Ensign (CR) April 2015
Only when we see through Heavenly Father’s eyes can we be filled with “the pure love of Christ.” Every day we should plead with God for this love. Mormon admonished, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ.” - Dale G. Renlund, “Through God’s Eyes,” Ensign (CR) November 2015
Whatever our current direction or distance to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, we can choose to turn toward Them and draw closer to Them. They will help us. - Dale G. Renlund, "That I Might Draw All Men unto Me,” Ensign (CR) May 2016
The sacrament truly helps us know our Savior. It also reminds us of His innocent suffering. If life were truly fair, you and I would never be resurrected; you and I would never be able to stand clean before God. In this respect, I am grateful that life is not fair. – Dale G. Renlund, “That I Might Draw All Men unto Me,” Ensign (CR) May 2016
I promise you protection for you and your family as you take this challenge to ‘find as many names to take to the temple as ordinances you perform in the temple, and teach others to do the same.’ - Dale G. Renlund, address at RootsTech conference, Feb. 6, 2016
And we need to remember that it is not the Holy Ghost that tells us we’re so far gone that we might as well give up. – Dale G. Renlund, “Latter-day Saints Keep on Trying,” Ensign (CR) May 2015
Jesus Christ can forgive because He paid the price for our sins.
Our Redeemer chooses to forgive because of His incomparable compassion, mercy, and love.
Our Savior wants to forgive because this is one of His divine attributes.
And, like the Good Shepherd He is, He is joyful when we choose to repent. – Dale G. Renlund, “Repentance: A Joyful Choice,” Ensign (CR) November 2016
