An Easter Message of Christ’s Peace

During a special Palm Sunday message to the world, Russell M. Nelson, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, shared a near death experience. “I was at peace, ready to meet my maker. For the past year we have all been dealing with dramatic and unexpected events. Amid such uncertainty, there is only one way to feel at peace–the real peace that passes all understanding. That peace is found in faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.”

President Nelson encouraged all to focus on the Savior. “If you are looking for a place to worship, please join with us. On Easter Sunday, the worldwide general conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be filled with Christ-centered messages and music. We will gather virtually to worship our Redeemer. Please join us. Invite your friends.”

The Peace and Hope of Easter

During the Palm Sunday broadcast, the Prophet invited all to take action. He asked us to make this Holy Week a time of holiness by remembering not just the palms that were waved to herald Jesus Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem, but the palms of His hands that are a mark of His selfless sacrifice. “The Savior promised He will never forget you, saying ‘Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.’ After all that Christ did for you, I invite you to do something this week to follow His teachings. You might make your prayers more earnest. You could forgive someone or help a friend in need. You can start today on a new spiritual quest.”

This Holy Week, we can remember all Christ did for us. “As our resurrected Savior, He stands ready to help us grow from the dramatic, unexpected events in our lives. At this Easter season, let us worship and praise Him for the peace, hope, light and truth He brings to us.”

In faith,

Christie
