Here’s a few quotes and memes based on Chapter 6: Jesus Christ, Our Savior and Redeemer from this year’s manual for Relief Society and Priesthood, Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Ezra Taft Benson. (Most wards will teach this lesson on March 15th; lessons from the manual are usually taught on the 2nd and 3rd Sunday of each month.) Please feel free to use these memes for non-commercial, gospel sharing purposes!
“How One could bear the sins for all is beyond the comprehension of mortal man. But this I know: He did take on Himself the sins of all and did so out of His infinite love for each of us. He has said: ‘For behold, I, God, have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer if they would repent; … which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might not drink the bitter cup, and shrink.’” (D&C 19:16, 18.)
“Jesus came to earth to do our Father’s will.
“He came with a foreknowledge that He would bear the burden of the sins of us all.
“He knew he would be lifted up on the cross.
“He was born to be the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind.
“He was able to accomplish His mission because He was the Son of God and He possessed the power of God.
“He was willing to accomplish His mission because He loves us.”
“As one of His latter-day witnesses, I testify that He lives today. He is a resurrected Being. He is our Savior, our Lord, the very Son of God. I testify that He will come again as our glorified, resurrected Lord. That day is not far distant. To all who accept Him as Savior and Lord, His literal resurrection means that life does not end at death, for He promised: ‘Because I live, ye shall live also.’ (John 14:19.)”
“Faith in Jesus Christ consists of complete reliance on Him. As God, He has infinite power, intelligence, and love. There is no human problem beyond His capacity to solve. Because He descended below all things (see D&C 122:8), He knows how to help us rise above our daily difficulties.”
“The constant and most recurring question in our minds, touching every thought and deed of our lives, should be, ‘Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?’ (Acts 9:6.) The answer to that question comes only through the Light of Christ and the Holy Ghost. Fortunate are those who so live that their being is filled with both.”
