Messages of inspiration from President Hinckley

Believe in Jesus Christ

Believe in Jesus Christ.... He is the Son of God who came to earth, who left the royal courts on high, and came and dwelt among men, and gave His life for each of us, for you and for me. It is through Him that we approach the Father. Be not faithless, but believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior and the Redeemer of the world. — From member meeting, Moscow, Russia, Sept. 10, 2002

Declaration of Jesus

As the Bible is the testament of the Old World, the Book of Mormon is the testament of the New. They go hand in hand in declaration of Jesus as the Son of the Father. — From General Conference, Sunday morning address, April 3, 2005

He left His mark

Born in a manger, He came to earth under the humblest of circumstances. The Son of the Almighty became the Savior of all mankind.... He walked the roads of Palestine working miracles. He healed the sick, He brought sight to the blind, He raised the dead. He blessed the little children and condemned any who should offend them.

He left His mark upon the world, which can never be erased nor diminished. Concluding that brief life was the agony of Gethsemane and the terrible suffering of Golgotha, to be followed by the glory of the Resurrection. No other had ever done before what He did. He rose from the grave, and through His great act of Atonement came salvation for all men. Our eternal lives are in His hands, and our eternal progress lies in obedience to His teachings. — From First Presidency Christmas Devotional, Dec. 3, 2006

I know the gospel is true

Do I know it's (the gospel) is true? I want everybody in this hall tonight to realize that you each heard me say to you that I know that God, our Eternal Father lives. I know that He lives. I know that He is a Being of substance. I know that He is the great God of the Universe. I know, however, that I am His child and that you are His children and that He will listen to, and hear, and answer our prayers. I know that Jesus is the Christ. He was the great instrument in the hands of God to create the earth.

The Gospel of John says that nothing was made that was not made by Him. He was the Creator. He was the Jehovah of the Old Testament. He was the Christ child, who came and was born under humble circumstances. He was the Messiah, who walked a lonely road to Palestine, healing the sick and raising the dead. He was the Great Redeemer of the world, who died on Calvary's Hill and was resurrected the third day — the first fruits of them that slept. He, it was, who visited the Nephites on the American continent and taught them as He had taught in Palestine. And He it was who, with His father, visited the boy Joseph and spoke to him concerning the restoration of this work.

I know that the priesthood is here upon the earth and is available to every man who lives worthy of it. I know that the ordinances of the temple are upon the earth — the great sealing ordinances under which we may be bound together as families for time and all eternity. I know that God will not forsake this work, but He will see that there is always someone through whom He can communicate His truths to the people. — From Nairobi, Kenya, member meeting, Aug. 4, 2005

Learn of Him

If you wish to know of the Savior, read of the Savior. Read the New Testament, study it. Read the words of the Lord. Read the Epistles of Paul that speak of Him in wonder and glory and awe. Read the Book of Mormon. Pray about it. Get on your knees, ask the Lord for a testimony of the truth of this most important of all knowledge — the divinity and the reality of the Lord Jesus Christ. — From regional conference, St. George, Utah, Nov. 24, 2002
