But there are more important things about Easter than it being a big long holiday. Elder Oaks has presented some powerful conference talks on related subjects, but one of my favorites is April 2000, entitled The Resurrection.

Even bigger than freedom from death is freedom from the bondage of sin. Life. Jesus gives us life. Satan wants to give us death. But Jesus overcame Satan, and because He did, so can we.
So on this weekend when we remember the most important event in human history, I add my own simple witness that because of what Jesus did for us, we can continue to live. He opened the door and made it possible for us to repent, to be free from the misery Satan wants us to share with him. We can be free of guilt and pain related to our sins. We can be free! Free at last, free at last.
Thank God Almighty, we can be free at last!
The greatest thing we as members of the Church, missionaries all, have to offer to a confused and misdirected world, is freedom from sin, and from death and sorrow. And it is because of what Jesus did for us.
