“Immortality and Eternal Life,” New Era, July 2019, 37.
The purpose of Heavenly Father’s plan is to help us become like Him and obtain immortality and eternal life. Heavenly Father finds joy and is glorified as we progress and become like Him.
Immortality is to live forever as a resurrected being. Because of the resurrection, our spirits and bodies will be reunited, never again to be separated. Every person born on earth will be resurrected because Jesus Christ overcame death (see 1 Corinthians 15:20–22).
Eternal life is:
Also called exaltation.
God’s greatest gift to His children (see Doctrine and Covenants 14:7).
To live like God, in His presence as families (see Doctrine and Covenants 131:1–4).
Like immortality in that it is possible through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
