The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released an Easter Message on the Church Newsroom.
President Russell M. Nelson, Dallin H. Oaks, and Henry B. Eyring shared the following message to which they each signed their names:
At this Easter season, we gratefully commemorate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We joyfully proclaim and solemnly testify that because of Jesus Christ, we will all live again.
Central to God’s eternal plan is the mission of His Son, Jesus Christ. He came to redeem God’s children. Through the Savior’s Atonement, resurrection and immortality became a reality for all and eternal life became a possibility for all who would qualify. Jesus declared:
“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die” (John 11:25–26).
Thanks be to God for the Atonement of Jesus Christ and for His gift of resurrection!
We are so grateful for living prophets who declare their witness to the world that Jesus is the Christ. We are excited to hear their counsel and direction in the upcoming General Conference that will be held April 3-4, 2021.
