First Presidency Christmas Greeting

Print Share

    We rejoice with all of Christianity during this blessed time of year when our thoughts turn toward Him whose birth we celebrate, even Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We love Him, we praise Him, and we invite all to come unto Him.

    He alone lived a perfect life and made atonement for the sins of others by doing the will of His Father. Little wonder that at His birth angels sang, a new star arose, wise men took notice, and prophets rejoiced. His gospel is a message of love.

    It was He who with great love and tenderness invoked a blessing of comfort: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

    We humbly extend a blessing of peace and comfort to all who seek the Lord during this holy season. May the coming year be filled with joy and find us obedient to the commandments of God as exemplified in the life of His Son.
