Happy Easter!

Easter is a great holiday to celebrate. The resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is truly an incredible event. Thanks to His glorious sacrifice, we too can be resurrected and forgiven of our sins, so that we can return to be in the presence of our Father in Heaven. Our latter-day scriptures provide further witnesses for the reality of the Resurrection of our Savior. I am grateful for these additional witnesses, and I testify that they are true. Here is just a very small sample of such scriptures:

In the Book of Mormon:
"by the power of the Father he hath risen again, whereby he hath gained the victory over the grave; and also in him is the sting of death swallowed up." –Mormon 7:5
In the Doctrine & Covenants:
"And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives! For we saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father." –D&C 76:22-23
And from the mouths of living prophets in this year's First Presidency Easter Message:
The message of Easter is that the Savior lives! And because He lives all shall indeed live again. This knowledge provides the peace for loved ones of those who have passed on, "Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives: 'I know that my Redeemer lives!'"
It is great to know that we worship a God who lives. I hope everyone has a happy Easter.
