How to teach your children what it means to be a “savior on Mount Zion”

Do your children know that they can be “saviors on Mount Zion”?

Maybe they have heard this term but don’t know what it means.

Read on for important information they need to hear.

“Just as our Redeemer gave His life as a vicarious sacrifice for all men,

and in so doing became our Savior,

even so we, in a small measure, when we engage in proxy work in the temple,

become as saviors to those on the other side

who have no means of advancing

unless something is done in their behalf by those on earth.”

Gordon B. Hinckley

You can teach your children that the title savior literally means “one who saves”

Becoming like the Savior is the ultimate goal for your children

(and for yourselves.)

Here’s your chance.

When your children serve in the Temple

they are performing saving ordinances

that many of God’s children are completely unable to do for themselves.

Your children can learn what it feels like to actually save someone,

in a small way emulating what Jesus Christ has done for all of us.

Good people have lived and died without covenants

“What do you suppose the fathers would say

if they could speak from the dead?

Would they not say, “

We have lain here thousands of years, here in this prison house,

waiting for this dispensation to come?” . . .

Why, if they had the power,

the very thunders of heaven would be in our ears

if we could realize the importance of the work we are engage in.

All the angels in heaven are looking at this little handful of people,

and stimulating them to the salvation of the human family.”

Brigham Young

That quote from Brigham Young says it all.

There is a mind-blowing number of very good people

who are waiting anxiously for their “saviors on Mount Zion”

to help them receive the covenants and ordinances

that seem so commonplace to members of the church in this era.

Your children have the power to unlock their cold, creaking prison doors

and let them into the sunlight that many have craved for eons.

Teach children that the Lord is no respecter of persons

What a great teaching tool.

We live in a very unfair world,

where there are wide disparities between the opportunities people have.

The tendency is to look down on other people

that don’t have the same opportunities.

As your children serve as saviors in the Temple,

Heavenly Father proves to them that all of His children are of great value

He gives your kids that chance to help give the most precious blessings

to His precious children.

He will show your kids that He has given everyone the opportunity

to receive all saving ordinances, no matter where or when they lived.

He shows them that those who have access to these precious ordinances now

are no better than those who lived in the dark ages.

We just have different circumstances,

and the Lord evens out the scale in this beautiful way.

Your children can be a part of the team that literally saves people.

What a great feeling it can be to your children.

They can be a part of a great work on a winning team.

They can receive joy now

and the promise of much greater joy

when they actually get to meet the people that they are serving so effectively.

You can teach your children what it means to be a “savior on Mount Zion”

“How beautiful thy temple, Lord!

How beautiful its faith and hope;

All mankind it would save,

Including in its aim and scope

The souls beyond the grave.

How Beautiful Thy Temples, Lord (Hymn 288)

As you teach your children just what it means to be “saviors on Mount Zion”

an opportunity arises

to teach them wonderful principles that will help them now

and throughout the eternities.

You can help them take a giant step toward becoming more like the Savior.
