Jesus Christ

ArtBook__134_134__EzraTaftBenson____[1]“The Lord works from the inside out.  The world works from the outside in.  The world would take people out of the slums.  Christ takes the slums out of the people, and then they take themselves out of the slums.  The world would mold men by changing their environment.  Christ changes men, who then change their environment.  The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature . . . Christ changes men, and changed men can change the world.”
– Ezra Taft Benson


davidomckay“The power of Christ’s love for us – and the reciprocal love we come to have for Him – is the real power of the Atonement in our daily lives.  When we truly love Him, we want to serve Him and do His will.  All the doubts and whys vanish away.”
– David O. McKay



trumanmadsen“When Jesus lay in a manger, a helpless infant, He knew not that He was the Son of God, and that formerly He created the earth.  When the edict of Herod was issued, He knew nothing of it; He had not power to save Himself; and His father and mother had to take him and fly into Egypt to preserve Him from the effects of that edict.  Well, he grew up to manhood, and during His progress, it was revealed unto Him who He was, and for what purpose He was in before He came in to the world was made known unto Him (Lorenzo Snow). … What was true of Jesus is also true of us: Neither do we know what greatness we attained before we came here.”
– Truman G. Madsen


MONSON_medium“Not only by precept did Jesus teach, but also by example.  He stretched forth his hand that others might be lifted.  Unaltered is the divine command to succor the weak and lift up the hands which hang down and strengthen the feeble knees.  Each of us has the charge to be a doer and lifter.  There are those within the sphere of our own influence who, with outstretched hands, cry out: ‘Is there not balm in Gilead?’  Each of us must answer.”
– Thomas S. Monson


Elder Dallin H. Oaks“Following Christ is not a casual or occasional practice but a continuous commitment and way of life that applies at all times and in all places.”
– Dallin H. Oaks



Joseph_Smith1_Mormon“After all the testimonies which have been given, this is the testimony last of all which we give of Him, That He Lives!”
– Joseph Smith




dieter-f-uchtdorf-large“Life has a way of testing our anchors and tempting us to drift. Nevertheless, if our anchors are correctly placed in the rock of our Redeemer, they will hold no matter the force of the wind, the strength of the tide, or the height of the wave.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf



ArtBook__134_134__EzraTaftBenson____[1]“No other single influence has had so great an impact on this earth as the life of Jesus the Christ. His charge to return good for evil is still the greatest challenge to the mind of men. At the same time it is man’s greatest weapon.”
– Ezra Taft Benson



hinckley_medium“Jesus is my friend. None other has given me so much. He gave His life for me. I hope that I am worthy of being a friend to Him.”
– Gordon B. Hinckley



sheri_dew“Jesus Christ is not our last chance. He is our only chance. He will show us the way because He is the way.”
– Sheri Dew




MONSON_medium“As we make Christ the center of our lives, our fears will be replaced by the courage of our convictions.”
– Thomas S. Monson




MONSON_medium“The Master could be found mingling with the poor, the downtrodden, the oppressed, and the afflicted. He brought hope to the hopeless, strength to the weak, and freedom to the captive. He taught of the better life to come – even eternal life. This knowledge ever directs those who receive the divine injunction: ‘Follow thou me.’ It guided Peter. It motivated Paul. It can determine our personal destiny. Can we make the decision to follow in righteousness and truth the Redeemer of the world? With his help a rebellious boy can become an obedient man, a wayward girl can cast aside the old self and begin anew. Indeed, the gospel of Jesus Christ can change men’s lives.”
– Thomas S. Monson

hinckley_medium“The gospel of Jesus Christ is the way of peace.  To the extent we follow it and incorporate it into our lives will we be blessed and prospered.”
– Gordon B. Hinckley



walter-f-gonzalez-large“As Christ followed the Father under any circumstance, we should follow His Son.  If we do so, it matters not what kind of persecution, suffering, grief, or ‘thorn in the flesh’ we face.  We are not alone.  Christ will assist us.  His tender mercies will make us mighty under any circumstance.”
– Walter F. Gonzalez



howard-w-hunter-mormon“Please remember this one thing.  If our lives and our faith are centered upon Jesus Christ and his restored gospel, nothing can ever go permanently wrong.  On the other hand, if our lives are not centered on the Savior and His teachings, no other success can ever be permanently right.”
– Howard W. Hunter



howard-w-hunter-mormon“Let us follow the Son of God in all ways and all walks of life. Let us make him our exemplar and our guide. We are at a time in the history of the world and the growth of the Church when we must think more of holy things and act more like the Savior would expect his disciples to act. We should at every opportunity ask ourselves, “What would Jesus do?” and then act more courageously upon the answer. We must be about his work as he was about his Father’s. We should make every effort to become like Christ, the one perfect and sinless example this world has ever seen.”
– Howard W. Hunter


dieter-f-uchtdorf-large“Though you may feel that no one can understand the depth of your despair, our Savior, Jesus Christ, understands. He suffered more than we can possibly imagine, and He did it for us; He did it for you. You are not alone.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf



elizarsnow“I will go forward…I will smile at the rage of the tempest, and ride fearlessly and triumphantly across the boisterous ocean of circumstance…And the ‘testimony of Jesus’ will light up a lamp that will guide my vision through the portals of immortality, and communicate to my understanding the glories of the Celestial kingdom.”
– Eliza R. Snow


m-russell-ballard-large“Trust the Lord. He is the good shepherd. He knows His sheep. And his sheep know his voice.”
– M. Russell Ballard




l-whitney-clayton-large“Will we choose to believe in Him or will we refuse to believe and insist on traveling alone in the dark?”
– L. Whitney Clayton




jose-a-teixeira-large“The more we understand the extraordinary role of Christ in our lives, the more conscious we become of our purpose.”
– Jose A. Teixieria




C_s_lewis3“I believe in Christ like I believe in the sun. Not because I can see it, but by it I can see everything else.”
– C.S. Lewis*




dieter-f-uchtdorf-large“Our Savior, the Good Shepherd, knows and loves us. He knows and loves you. He knows when you are lost, and He knows where you are. He knows your grief. Your silent pleadings. Your fears. Your tears. It matters not how you became lost – whether because of your own poor choices or because of circumstances beyond your control. What matters is that you are His child. And He loves you. He loves His children.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf



“Everything Christ puts His hands on lives.”
– Jack R. Christianson


“Wise men still seek Him.”


What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb
If I were a Wise Man
I would do my part,
Yet what can I give Him?
Give my heart.
– Christina Rossetti*
