Alma 4:14 "Looking forward to that day, thus retaining a remission of their sins; being filled with great joy because of the resurrection of the dead, according to the will and power and deliverance of Jesus Christ from the bands of death." I think if we are "looking forward" to a day, then we are also preparing for it. Like Christmas. We prepare for Christmas by decorating the house, buying gifts for those we love, watching Christmas movies, reading in Luke 2... So if we are "looking forward to that day" (the day that Christ shall come again), then we will be retaining a remission of our sins, because we will be repenting and trying to live righteously. We will be taking care of each other, the sick, and the needy, we will be doing all of those things that we have been asked to do.
