“Everything the Savior did and said was for the benefit of humankind,” Sister Cheryl A. Esplin, second counselor in the Primary general presidency, told students at Brigham Young University during a campus devotional on Feb. 3.
“His Atonement. His example, His teachings — everything was to help us not only to have a more abundant life on earth but also to attain the most abundant of all life — eternal life.”
Sister Esplin explained she had recently been reading the Savior’s words from John 10:10. The words she read made her ponder and apply them to her own life. Quoting the scripture she said, “I am come that they [meaning you and me] might have life, and that they [you and me] might have it more abundantly."
She emphasized three principles the Savior taught that would lead people to a more abundant life.
