The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released its 2021 Easter message Thursday celebrating the Atonement and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The message was signed by Presidents Russell M. Nelson, Dallin H. Oaks and Henry B. Eyring and issued from the church’s headquarters in Salt Lake City.
The March 25 statement reads as follows:
At this Easter season, we gratefully commemorate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We joyfully proclaim and solemnly testify that because of Jesus Christ, we will all live again. Central to God’s eternal plan is the mission of His Son, Jesus Christ. He came to redeem God’s children. Through the Savior’s Atonement, resurrection and immortality became a reality for all and eternal life became a possibility for all who would qualify. Jesus declared: ‘I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die’ (John 11:25–26). Thanks be to God for the Atonement of Jesus Christ and for His gift of resurrection!
Easter falls on Sunday, April 4, this year.
