Elder Jeffrey R. Holland wrote: "True charity has been known only once. It is shown perfectly and purely in Christ's unfailing, ultimate, and atoning love for us....It is as demonstrated in Christ that 'charity never faileth.' It is that charity—his pure love for us—without which we would be nothing, hopeless, of all men and women most miserable. Truly, those found possessed of the blessings of his love at the last day—the Atonement, the Resurrection, eternal life, eternal promise—surely it shall be well with them" (Christ and the New Covenant, 336).
Having experienced the love of God in our lives through his forgiveness and his divine enabling power, we are in a position to reach out, lift up, and liberate those who struggle with life's challenges. "Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another....We love him [and our brothers and sisters], because he first loved us" (1 John 4:11, 19).
