- I want to testify to you that President Russell M. Nelson is the prophet of God on earth. I have never seen anyone more kind and loving than he is. Though I felt so inadequate for this sacred call, his words and the tender look in his eyes as he extended this responsibility made me feel embraced by the Savior’s love. Thank you, President Nelson. I sustain you and I love you.
He expresses his testimony that we are not alone to figure out this world. Prophets help us along the way and they help us understand the will of the Lord through life's challenges.
- It is comforting to know that we are not alone in the world, despite the challenges we face in life. Having prophets is a sign of God’s love for His children. They make known the promises and the true nature of God and of Jesus Christ to Their people. I have learned that through my personal experiences.
He shares his testimony of living prophets and their divine mission to testify of Christ throughout the world.
- I testify that the prophets speak by the power of the Holy Spirit. They testify of Christ and His divine mission on earth. They represent the mind and heart of the Lord and are called to represent Him and teach us what we must do to return to live in the presence of God and His Son, Jesus Christ. We are blessed as we exercise our faith and follow their teachings. By following them, our lives are happier and less complicated, our difficulties and problems are easier to bear, and we create a spiritual armor around us that will protect us from the attacks of the enemy in our day.
Finally, he ends with his testimony of the Savior and His atonement.
- On this Easter day I solemnly testify that Jesus Christ is risen, He lives, and He directs His Church on earth through His prophets, seers, and revelators. I testify that He is the Savior and Redeemer of the world and that through Him we can be saved and exalted in the presence of our dear God.
Elder Soares mentions in his talk that by following the prophets our lives will be blessed and that our lives will be happier and less complicated. What a great blessing to have in our lives. We can be assured of our lives being manageable when we follow the prophet's direction. That doesn't mean we won't have concerns, trials, or problems in our lives. but it does mean that we will be happier as we go through those trials and our outlook will be less complicated. I have learned that as I study about learn from the prophets, I can recognize changes I need to make in my life that will bring me closer to my Heavenly Father. I am grateful for Him and His love.
