A Story of Redemption

Today’s inspiration is drawn from “Christ Heals That Which Is Broken” by Amy A. Wright, Second Counselor in the Primary General Presidency during April 2022 general conference. In her profound discourse, Wright beautifully elucidates how Christ’s healing power extends to mend our broken relationships with God, with others, and with ourselves.In the sacred scriptures, we find narratives of individuals grappling with brokenness, seeking redemption, and finding solace in the healing grace of Jesus Christ. One such story is that of the adulterous woman brought before Jesus by the scribes and Pharisees. In this encounter, Christ’s response—”Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more”—embodies His unconditional love and offers a path to repentance and transformation (John 8:1-11).Within the sacred texts, narratives abound of individuals grappling with brokenness, seeking redemption, and finding solace in the compassionate embrace of Jesus Christ. Consider the story of the adulterous woman brought before Jesus by the scribes and Pharisees. In this pivotal moment, Christ’s response—”Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more”—exemplifies His boundless love and offers a pathway to repentance and renewal (John 8:1-11).

Healing Broken Relationships with God

Just as Christ offered solace to the woman caught in sin, He extends the same invitation to each of us—to “go forth and change,” to repent and turn our hearts towards God. Through His atoning sacrifice, Christ sanctifies and restores our broken relationship with the divine, reminding us that no matter our past mistakes, we are never beyond the reach of His infinite love and mercy.In mirroring Christ’s response to the repentant woman, we are reminded of His enduring invitation to each of us—to “go forth and change,” to turn away from sin and realign our hearts with the divine. Through His atoning sacrifice, Christ acts as the ultimate mediator, restoring our fractured relationship with God and reaffirming our eternal worthiness of His love and forgiveness.

A Universal Commandment


The parable of the prodigal son illustrates the profound nature of forgiveness—a gift both given and received. Despite the son’s transgressions, his father’s immediate embrace symbolizes the boundless mercy of God. Forgiveness, though challenging, is a noble act that liberates both the giver and the receiver. As we extend forgiveness to others and ourselves, we emulate Christ’s divine example of love and compassion (Luke 15:11-32).The timeless parable of the prodigal son serves as a poignant reminder of the transformative power of forgiveness.

As we extend forgiveness to others and ourselves, we emulate Christ’s divine example of love and compassion (Luke 15:11-32).

Healing Broken Parts of Ourselves

In Acts chapter 3, we encounter a man born lame, whose encounter with Peter and John leads to miraculous healing. Like the lame beggar waiting at the temple gate, we may find ourselves in seasons of waiting and longing for healing—physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Yet, in our moments of vulnerability, Christ invites us to trust in His timing and to find solace in His presence. Through faith in Him, we discover that true healing transcends physical restoration and encompasses the renewal of our innermost selves.In Acts chapter 3, we encounter a man born lame, whose encounter with Peter and John leads to miraculous healing.

Embracing Healing and Wholeness

As we reflect on the profound truths elucidated by Wright, let us heed the call to action embedded within her message. Let us embrace the healing power of Christ in our lives, seeking repentance, extending forgiveness, and trusting in His timing. Moreover, let us extend the same love and compassion to those around us, fostering a culture of healing and wholeness in our communities. Link to Original: Christ Heals That Which Is Broken
