“I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” —John 5:30
“Jesus Christ is the head of the Church in all the earth. He leads His Church today by speaking to men called as prophets, and He does it through revelation. He gave revelation to His prophets long ago, still does, and will continue to do so. From those fundamentals, we recognize that the Lord’s leadership of His Church requires great and steady faith from all who serve Him on earth.” —Henry B. Eyring
