A Christmas Message from the First Presidency to the Children of the World:

Light of the World

The First Presidency

Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him” (Matt. 2:2). So spoke the Wise Men long ago when they followed the heavenly light which led them to the Savior of mankind.

Jesus Christ, born in humble surroundings, crucified, and resurrected, is our source of light to guide us in the paths we should follow. As we look to Him, following His light and doing what He would want us to do, we will find peace and happiness.

We testify that Jesus Christ is our Redeemer and our Friend. He is the Light of the World. He lives, and because He lives, we shall live eternally (see John 14:19).

With love,
The First Presidency
