We rejoice with you in another wonderful Christmas season when with all Christendom we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Seeing ahead several centuries, the prophet Isaiah said: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given … And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isa. 9:6.)
After His birth and during His ministry Peter said, “We … were eye witnesses of his majesty.” (2 Pet. 1:16.)
A century and a half ago, modern-day witnesses declared, “We saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father.” (D&C 76:23.)
We testify that it was Jesus Christ who said: “If ye will come unto me ye shall have eternal life. Behold, mine arm of mercy is extended towards you, and whosoever will come, him will I receive; and blessed are those who come unto me.” (3 Ne. 9:14.)
At this glorious time of year, we again invite all to commit and rededicate their lives to the resurrected Savior and the precepts He taught.
The First Presidency
