"Our Savior’s Second Coming is drawing nearer. Let us not delay in this great cause. Remember Captain Moroni, who hoisted the title of liberty inscribed with the words “In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children.” Let us remember the people’s response: exercising their agency, they “came running together” with a covenant to act."
"To worthily partake of the sacrament, we remember that we are renewing the covenant we made at baptism. For the sacrament to be a spiritually cleansing experience each week, we need to prepare ourselves before coming to sacrament meeting. We do this by deliberately leaving behind our daily work and recreation and letting go of worldly thoughts and concerns. As we do, we make room in our minds and hearts for the Holy Ghost."
—Elder Robert D. Hales, "Coming to Ourselves: The Sacrament, the Temple, and Sacrifice in Service"
"As we renew and honor our covenants, our burdens can be lightened and we can continually become purified and strengthened."
"When we realize that we are children of the covenant, we know who we are and what God expects of us."
"Your choice to believe and keep covenants will leave a rich legacy of faith for those who follow you."
"Covenants with God help us to know who we really are."
"The gospel of Jesus Christ and the covenants we have made inevitably cast us as combatants in the eternal contest between truth and error. There is no middle ground in that contest."
"Enduring to the end requires total commitment to the Savior and to our covenants."
"We should remember that a loving Heavenly Father is aware of our righteous desires and will honor His promises that nothing will be withheld from those who faithfully keep their covenants."
"By the ordinance [of baptism], we become part of the covenant people of the Lord and heirs of the celestial kingdom of God."
