How to look to the Savior for the perfect example — by Elder Quentin L. Cook


Thoughts presented by Elder Quentin L. Cook at the Provo Missionary Training Center on December 25, 2021:

How to look to the Savior’s example:

  • Consider His miraculous birth —  He inherited the ‘power to live’ from His father, and the ‘power to die’ from His mother.
  • Ponder His perfect and sinless life and His example —  He was our Exemplar and He laid out the path that we should follow.
  • Contemplate His death, Resurrection, and Atonement —  The Atonement is the greatest event in the history of this earth.
  • Anticipate His second coming — I wonder when He comes again will I be ready there…
  • Serve the Savior by being His hands — The Savior said He would establish a church by our hands (Doctrine and Covenants 31:7)
  • Love the Lord — “…if ye love me, keep my commandments…”
  • Show others how to find Jesus — Your missionary service is a wonderful gift to the Lord.
