"Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World"

"Behold, I am Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. (D&C 43:34, other scriptures ). Both to Prophets and in his ministry, the Savior declared that he was and is the Savior of the World.

And he will come again. We are "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ"

When that glorious day comes, no matter what side of the veil we may be on, may we be ready to greet him with joy, having done all that we could to build his kingdom by serving others, lifting them, and by "strengthening the feeble knees" (Elder Holland)

In this way, may we all truly love the Savior, so that he says to us at the last day "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." (Matthew 25:40), and as is said in verse 46, gain eternal life.

The Savior loves all of his children, and longs to lift each of them, and we are God's hands on earth. We have a "mandate to serve" as President Monson says (and does).

May we do that and feel of the spirit in this life, and the warm embrace of our Savior in the world to come.
