Elder Claudio R. M. Costa of the Presidency of the Seventy taught about the importance of studying the stories of Christ, remembering him, and sharing this knowledge with the family.
Elder Costa spoke during the Sunday morning session of the October 2015 General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He discussed the importance of remembering him by worthily partaking of the sacrament and the joy of always having the companionship of the Holy Spirit.
“Furthermore, meditating on the Sacrament prayer and the very special and meaningful words of the prayer, how wonderful is to receive the promise, during the blessing of the sacrament that as we always remember him, we will always have his spirit with us.”
Elder Costa further explained the importance of remembering the Savior as we partake of the Sacrament and how one can receive greater revelation on his sacrifice.
“The sacrament is also a time for Heavenly Father to teach us about the Atonement of His Beloved Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, and for us to receive revelation about it.“
Elder Costa stressed the importance of having a Christ centered Sabbath day to create traditions and protect family.
“The Sabbath and the sacrament become much more enjoyable as we study the stories of Christ. In so doing, we create traditions that build our faith and testimony, and also protect our family.”
Elder Costa described that an important part of remembering the Savior is actually asking God for more knowledge.
“It is time for us to reverently ask God for this knowledge. I have no doubt that we will receive this knowledge, which will bless our lives beyond measure.”
He finished his talk by sharing his love for the Savior.
“I love the Sabbath, the Sacrament, and what it means. I love the Savior with all my soul.”
