"Learning (Not Earning) Heaven," Brad Wilcox

Category: Audio
Rank: 5

Through simple yet powerful analogies and moving personal experiences, Brother Wilcox reminds us that the miracle of the Atonement is that not only can we be cleansed and consoled, but we can be transformed. Christ chose to become like us so that, through His grace, we can choose to become like Him. It's a lofty goal and a long and difficult process. When we get discouraged, it is easy to feel like giving up. But we can find renewed motivation when we feel God's love and power. Keep trying. Keep practicing. It will be worth it—not because we are earning a treasure in heaven, but because we are learning to treasure heavenly things.
