?A prophet does not stand between you and the Savior. Rather, he stands beside you and points the way to the Savior. A prophet?s greatest responsibility and most precious gift to us is his sure witness, his certain knowledge, that Jesus is the Christ. Like Peter of old, our prophet declares, `[He is] the Christ, the Son of the living God? [Matthew 16:16; see also John 6:69]. ?In a future day, looking back on our mortality, we will rejoice that we walked the earth at the time of a living prophet. At that day, I pray that we will be able to say: ?We listened to him. We believed him. We studied his words with patience and faith. We prayed for him. We stood by him. We were humble enough to follow him. We loved him?
