Jesus Christ, Our Savior

    Jesus Christ, Our Savior

    “I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth” (Job 19:25).

    We join ancient Job in bearing heartfelt witness of Jesus Christ. He is the Savior of the world and the Son of God. He is our Redeemer, the Light and the Life, and our Advocate. He is the only Way by which we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. He saves us from sin and death. Someday, He will return to reign on earth and He will be our Lord forever. We are most grateful to be Christians and seek to live as lights upon a hill.

    In addition to the Holy Scriptures, we are blessed today with living Apostles and Prophets who are special witnesses of Christ in all the world. Here are samples of the testimonies they share.

    Boyd K. Packer: I believe and I am sure that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that He lives. He is the Only Begotten of the Father, and “by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God” (D&C 76:24). I bear my witness that the Savior lives. I know the Lord. I am His witness. I know of His great sacrifice and eternal love for all of Heavenly Father’s children. I bear my special witness in all humility but with absolute certainty.

    Jeffrey R. Holland: It is a matter of surpassing wonder that the voluntary and merciful sacrifice of a single being could satisfy the infinite and eternal demands of justice; atone for every human misdeed; bear every mortal infirmity; feel every personal heartache, sorrow, and loss. But I testify that is exactly what Christ did for every one of us. I bear solemn witness that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is the compassionate foundation and central fact in God’s eternal plan for our salvation and our happiness. I declare my wonder and awe, my adoration and apostolic witness of Him.

    L. Tom Perry: I know that God lives. I know that we are all His children and that He loves us. I know that He sent His Son to the world to be an atoning sacrifice for all mankind.... I know that the only lasting joy and happiness we will ever find during our mortal experience will come by following the Savior, obeying His law, and keeping His commandments. He lives. This is my witness to you.

    M. Russell Ballard: This is His gospel. He stands at the head—holy, divine, supreme, full of power, majesty, grace, and truth. He lived for us, and He died for us, because He loves us. I love Him more deeply and powerfully than I can find words to express. He is my Lord, my Savior, my Redeemer, and my friend. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God our Eternal Father. He lives and directs His Church today through His prophet and His Apostles. His great work will continue to roll forth until it fills the whole earth.

    Richard G. Scott: I testify that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is a resurrected being of perfect love and compassion. I witness that He gave His life that we might live eternally with Him and our Father in Heaven and our loved ones who qualify, through obedience to the commandments and receipt of all of the ordinances of salvation. I solemnly witness that I know that the Savior lives.

    Robert D. Hales: As an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, I have the opportunity to bear testimony as a sacred witness of the Savior. My greatest desire is that my testimony might penetrate the hearts of those who hear it. I know that Jesus Christ lives...and knows and loves each one of us. He so much wants to bless us if we will come unto Him. Of this I bear humble testimony and witness.
