And again, verily I say unto you, I command you again to build a house to my name, even in this place, that you may prove yourselves unto me that ye are faithful in all things whatsoever I command you, that I may bless you, and crown you with honor, immortality, and eternal life.—Doctrine and Covenants 124:55
The fundamental obligations that rest upon us as members of the Lord’s restored Church are (1) to “Hear Him!” and have our own hearts changed through covenants and ordinances and (2) to fulfill joyfully the divinely appointed responsibility to offer temple blessings to the entire human family on both sides of the veil. With the Lord’s direction and help, indeed we will fulfill these sacred duties.—David A. Bednar
This Day in Church History
1918: The First Presidency, the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and the Church Patriarch accept and endorse President Joseph F. Smith’s Vision of the Redemption of the Dead as the word of the Lord.
1985: Elder Thomas S. Monson dedicates Yugoslavia for the preaching of the gospel.
How can we follow the Lord’s charge to build temples today?
