“The Savior Is Born,” Friend, Dec. 2007, 2–3

A Christmas Message from the First Presidency to the Children of the World:
The Savior Is Born

At this wonderful time of year, we remember the angelic message given to the humble shepherds so long ago:

“Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

“And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:10–14).

The message of the birth of Jesus Christ gives us the knowledge of what we must do to return to live with our Father in Heaven. As we keep the commandments and become more like our Savior, we will find peace in our hearts and joy in our lives.

We testify that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. As we follow His example of obedience and service to others, our own lives are blessed with happiness and peace.
