And now, because of the covenant which ye have made ye shall be called the children of Christ, his sons, and his daughters; for behold, this day he hath spiritually begotten you; for ye say that your hearts are changed through faith on his name; therefore, ye are born of him and have become his sons and his daughters. —Mosiah 5:7
As we use our time in mortality to study and apply the Savior’s Teachings, we become more like Him. We come to understand that He is the way–the only way–we can overcome mortal challenges, be healed, and return back to our heavenly home. —Carole M. Stephens
