A Witness That Christ Lives…


“Now Elder Christofferson [newly ordained member of the Twelve] may wonder, as I did, why one such as I should be ordained to the holy apostleship. “There are many qualifications that I lack. There is so much in my effort to serve that is wanting. There is only one single thing, one qualification that can explain it. Like Peter and all of those who have since been ordained, I have that witness. “I know that God is our Father. He introduced His Son, Jesus Christ, to Joseph Smith. I declare to you that I know that Jesus is the Christ. I know that He lives. He was born in the meridian of time. He taught His gospel and was tried. He suffered and was crucified and resurrected on the third day. He, like His Father, has a body of flesh and bone. He made His Atonement. Of Him I bear witness. Of Him I am a witness.” Boyd K. Packer, “The Twelve,” Ensign, May 2008, 87
