Throughout my life, I have met a handful or two of amazingly Christlike *men. I was thinking about some of them last night and then I got to thinking about the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, 15 more amazing men who I love to hear and study their words. Also throughout my life, I have been terrified at the thought of the second coming of Jesus Christ. I have never felt ready or worthy or prepared. I have felt certain I would immediately become a pillar of salt if he were to arrive today.
Last night, all of those thoughts changed in an instant. I realized that when Jesus Christ comes, he will be one more man who I will want to listen and learn from, because I already do. He is full of love and truth and my perfect example. He has a vested interest in me. And in you also! When Christ comes, I am going to be looking to him still, as my perfect example. The only difference is I will be able to see him and not just feel him near me. The second coming of Jesus Christ is not the end. It's the beginning and that thought give me so much joy and hope, all I can do is laugh and cry and pray it comes sooner than later, because I am excited!
*I have also met many Christlike women. They weren't in my thought process last night.
