Following is the 2019 First Presidency Christmas message, released Dec. 5 and signed by President Russell M. Nelson, President Dallin H. Oaks and President Henry B. Eyring:

Memories of Christmas bring recollections of family, gifts, and service. They stem from the real reason for Christmas, that transcendent gift from our Heavenly Father. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

We bear witness of the living reality of Jesus Christ — the Prince of Peace and Light of the World. Joy can come to all who choose to follow Him.

This Christmas, may we reflect on the life and Atonement of Jesus Christ. May we feel kinship to those who suffer and see one another as sons and daughters of God. May we gratefully acknowledge the Father’s incomparable gift to us — His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
