From the Resurrection to the completion of the Work

So wonderful were the words spoken by the Savior that Easter Morning...

"And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her." (John 20:14-18)

Ever since that time, many of the Saints, Prophets, and apostles have proclaimed that the Savior lives, that he rose from the dead, and that all will again be risen.  And that we have the chance to return to live with God again.  May we ever make that our goal.

He will come again, coming in the clouds of heaven, with the righteous with him, and will rule and reign on earth.  Then, when the work is done, he will declare that it is finished, and will present the kingdom to the Father. 

May we ever rely on the Savior, come unto him, and in his gospel find peace, salvation, and exaltation with our families, our ancestors, our posterity, and all of the family of man who will come to him.
