President Dieter F. Uchtdorf teaches us to do everything in our power to hold a current temple recommend so we can extend the blessings of the gospel to others. He said: “The temple recommend is a symbol of our faithfulness and determination to serve the Lord. It is a symbol of our love for the Lord, for as Jesus taught, ‘He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him’ (John 14:21).”
“Each time we enter these sacred edifices, we play a role in the hallowed, redemptive work of salvation made available to all of God’s children as a result of the Atonement of the Only Begotten of the Father.”
—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
