Elder Holland Gives Apostolic Promise, Powerfully Moving Testimony

"Tonight in a special way for me, Christ is Alpha and Omega. He is the beginning and the end of everything for me. He is the place that I begin and the place I want to end. He was there before the foundation of the world and He’ll be there to receive us after the world has passed away and judgments have been rendered and eternal, celestial splendor unfolds."

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland left this testimony and apostolic blessing on the Young Single Adults of the Church at the #LDSFace2Face event, March 8, 2016. To listen to the broadcast click here.

Speaking of the testimonies of the evening, he said,

“All of this has substance and significance tonight because of God the Eternal Father, His Only Begotten Son and the power of the Holy Ghost in our lives as the three great members of the Godhead who are committed all day and all night to our health and our happiness. They, who never sleep, nor ever slumber are engaged entirely and totally in providing for the happiness of us as children of God.

“The matters of the universe, of keeping planets in order and whether the daffodils come up in the spring, those are nice ancillary issues. What They do without sleep or slumber is try to bring happiness and health and joy to us. I bear witness of that. I testify of it. I am the recipient of that love and so are you, even on the days when it might not be as recognizable it is true, it is their nature, it is the way of Godliness. It is the promise that their grace is sufficient and they can make us holy and happy.

“Of the many titles that I love of the Savior, and there are dozens, let me close with testimony of three titles. One is that He is the bright and morning star.
