In this Easter Season Let us remember that Christ lives. Though he was scourged, though He was spit upon, though He was hated and rejected, even though He was tried, crucified, and killed. He rose the third day.
“22)And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives! 23)For 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—24)That 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 76:22-24)
Let this be my simple testimony; that he lives! He lives this very moment!
“In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for he is risen.’”
“As one of His special witnesses on earth today, this glorious Easter Sunday, I declare that this is true, in His sacred name—even the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior—amen.”
—President Thomas S. Monson
