“And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.” – Doctrine & Covenants 130:21
“Is it any wonder that Christ chooses first and foremost to define himself in relation to his father—that he loved him and obeyed him and submitted to him like the loyal son he was? … Obedience is the first law of heaven.” – Jeffrey R. Holland
