β€œWhen you climb up a ladder,” Joseph Smith taught, β€œyou must begin at the bottom, and ascend step by step, until you arrive at the top; and so it is with the principles of the gospelβ€”you must begin with the first, and go on until you learn all the principles of exaltation” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith [2007], 268).

Sometimes that ladder of exaltation seems impossibly high, but we were born to climb to the top. Whatever limitations we may see in ourselves, Heavenly Father and His Son see something glorious in us, something godlike. Just as Jesus Christ β€œwas in the beginning with the Father,” so β€œye were also” (Doctrine and Covenants 93:21, 23).

Just as He β€œcontinued from grace to grace, until he received a fulness,” so also β€œyou shall receive grace for grace” (verses 13, 20).

The restored gospel teaches us about the true nature of God, and so it also teaches us about ourselves and what we can become.

Despite the efforts of the β€œwicked one” (verse 39)β€”and despite what you feel you may lackβ€”you are a literal child of God with the potential to β€œin due time receive of his fulness” (verse 19).
