The Sacrament Helps Us Draw Closer to Jesus Christ


Why did the Savior institute the sacrament? How can partaking of the sacrament help us draw closer to our Savior? President Dallin H. Oaks of the First Presidency describes the Savior’s introduction of the sacrament to His Apostles and testifies that participating in the sacrament is the most important act in which Latter-day Saints participate on the Sabbath. Partaking of the sacrament helps us to remember the Savior’s sacrifice for us, renew our covenants with Him, and be cleansed from our sins. President Oaks testifies that the Savior lives and that He “has provided the way for us to return to our heavenly home.”
