Boyd K. Packer

Who Is Heavenly Father?

The Father is the one true God. Nothing will ever change the relationship that we have with Him.

Spiritually you are of noble birth, the offspring of the King of heaven. Fix that truth in your mind and hold to it.

You are a child of God. He is the father of your spirit.

He is the Father. He is God. We revere our Father and our God; we worship Him.

Just as all life follows the pattern of its parents, so can we grow toward the image of our Heavenly Father if we will live righteously and be obedient to His commandments.
