“faith will help [me] to safely climb the gospel path, overcome every challenge of mortality, and return to the majestic presence of our Heavenly Father.” – Marcus B. Nash
Like the path on Huayna Picchu, our mortal journey is a steep and difficult climb, one that requires our Heavenly Father’s help to successfully complete. For this reason, He established the principles and ordinances of the gospel to bring us unto the Savior and His saving power.See Doctrine and Covenants 84:19–21. The first of those principles, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,See Articles of Faith 1:4. is like the cables on Huayna Picchu: if strong and securely attached to “the rock of our Redeemer,”Helaman 5:12. faith will help us to safely climb the gospel path, overcome every challenge of mortality,See Doctrine and Covenants 76:53. and return to the majestic presence of our Heavenly Father. All things are fulfilled by faith.See Ether 12:3.
