God is Loving Heavenly Father

Today I am going to talk about how God is our loving Heavenly Father. In the scriptures we have many references that show us how much God loves us. In John 3:16-17 we read

16¶For aGod so bloved the cworld, that he dgave his eonly begotten fSon, that whosoever gbelieveth in him should not perish, but have heverlasting ilife.

17For God asent not his Son into the world to bcondemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Can you imagine having to give up your only child to save some people you dont even know! How about a best friend? 

In the book of Moses chapter 7 the prophet Enoch sees in a vison Satan holding a great big chain and this chain that satan is holding covers the earth with darkness, and Satan is laughing with his angels.
Then the prophet Enoch sees angels coming down from heaven teaching and testifying of the God head. He then says, 

"And it came to pass that the God of heaven looked upon the aresidue of the people, and he wept"(Moses 7:28).  After Enoch sees this Enoch asks this question, "How is it that the heavens weep, and shed forth their tears as the rain upon the mountains?"

As we can clearly read from the scriptures, God loves us so much that when we turn away from Him he weeps for us. If God weeps for us when we turn away from him then think of how happy he is when we turn to him and obey his commandments.

It is my witness that God is our loving Heavenly Father and that he loves each and every one of us so much that His arms of mercy are opened waiting for us to grab hold of them.

I also bear witness that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ it is possible for all of Gods children to return to live with him once again.
