A Savior Is Born

As shepherds watched over their flocks by night, a glorious angel appeared with even more glorious news: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).

“These humble shepherds became the first of millions of mortal witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ. Like them, we are invited to be witnesses too.

“You may ask, isn’t the opportunity to be a witness reserved for those men selected by the Lord and called to serve as His Apostles? The answer is no. Apostles are called and ordained to be ‘special witnesses of the name of Christ in all the world’ (D&C 107:23), but the duty to witness and testify of Christ at all times and in all places applies to every member of the Church” (Dallin H. Oaks, “A Savior Is Born,” New Era, Dec. 2015, 73).

You can be a witness too! One way is to share your feelings about the Savior along with this video using #ASaviorIsBorn. You can also invite your friends to visit christmas.mormon.org.
