And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it. - Mosiah 2:41.
"The Lord's greatest gift to mortal man is threefold," said President N. Eldon Tanner of the First Presidency in the April 1970 general conference. "First, the right to immortality and eternal life; second, the plan by which he can gain it; third, his . . . agency to choose what he will do. The Lord gave us the plan which will bring us the greatest joy and happiness while on this earth, and which will prepare us for eternal life. All we have to do to enjoy this is to obey the law and keep His commandments."
