With all my heart and the fervency of my soul, I lift up my voice in testimony as a special witness and declare that God does live. Jesus is His Son, the Only Begotten of the Father in the flesh. He is our Redeemer; He is our Mediator with the Father. He it was who died on the cross to atone for our sins. He became the firstfruits of the Resurrection. Because He died, all shall live again.
– President Thomas S. Monson, “I Know That My Redeemer Lives!” Liahona and Ensign, May 2007, 24, 25.
This Sunday, this Easter Sunday, I will get up and watch the sun rise. I will watch the world fill with light. And I will be grateful for my Savior, the Son of God, who rose, so that the world, the whole world and my personal corner of it, could be filled with light.
He is risen. He lives.
