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 25.
This Christmas season, we invite you to find quiet moments to reflect on our Savior’s birth, life and atoning sacrifice. Come unto Him. Learn of Him. Look to Him for lasting peace and divine rest. In a world that often feels overwhelming and contentious, He offers peace that “passeth all understanding” (Philippians 4:7). He has promised:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; … and ye shall find rest unto your souls” (Matthew 11:28–29).
We testify that as you seek our Savior’s love, peace and rest, you will find it. You will be blessed to feel the true spirit of Christmas, the eternal joy that comes only from Him.
The First Presidency will host its annual Christmas devotional broadcast on Sunday, December 4, 2022, at 6 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. Learn how you can watch it.
