“For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him. But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.” —Luke 19:26-28
“My dear brothers and sisters, [today], we celebrate Palm Sunday—commemorating Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. In [one] week, we will celebrate Easter Sunday—commemorating the Savior’s triumph over death. As we focus our attention on the Savior during these two special Sundays, let us remember Him and renew our lifelong commitment to keeping His commandments. ” —M. Russell Ballard
