Elder Nelson reminds us that to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of the Lord’s birth, 15 modern-day prophets, seers, and revelators issued and signed their testimony to a declaration titled “The Living Christ.” He encourages us to study carefully the contents of this modern apostolic document.

Activity: On Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018, we can again find ways to view the General Conference Sessions. As we listen to the inspired messages from modern-day prophets and leaders, we should seek ways to strengthen our testimonies and understand the deep meaning of the words we sing in the hymn ‘The Spirit of God’:

‘The Lord is extending the Saints’ understanding. …

The knowledge and power of God are expanding;

The veil o’er the earth is beginning to burst.’”
