The First Presidency’s 2021 Christmas Message

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — President Russell M. Nelson, President Dallin H. Oaks, and President Henry B. Eyring — released the following Christmas message on Friday, November 26. It was shared across several Church communication channels:

When we sing “Silent Night,” we know the life of that Babe of Bethlehem did not begin there, nor did it end on Calvary. In a premortal realm, Jesus was foreordained by His Father to be the Messiah, the Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of all humankind. He was foreordained to atone for us. He was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities (Isaiah 53:5). He came to make immortality a reality and eternal life a possibility for all who would ever live (see 1 Corinthians 15:20–22; 3 Nephi 27:13–14).

At this sacred Christmas season, we testify that our loving Heavenly Father “so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

The First Presidency will host its annual Christmas devotional broadcast on Sunday, December 5, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. The program will include Christmas messages from Church leaders as well as music performed by The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square.
