Find joy in Christ

Choices matter. Choices based on gospel teachings are steps that lead you closer to your Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “These things have I spoken unto you, … that your joy might be full” (John 15:11). With each step toward Him, you will feel closer to the Spirit and your covenant relationship with God will become stronger.

But that doesn’t mean the path will be problem free. And since no one walks a perfectly straight line, constantly check your direction and honor God’s commandments. Keep your covenants with God, and prepare to make more. Covenants connect you to Heavenly Father and the Savior. They increase God’s power in your life and prepare you to receive eternal life.

Of all possible choices, the one that matters most is the choice to follow Jesus Christ. He is the strength of youth. His gospel is the joyful way back to your Heavenly Father.
