Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 87: September 10, 1925
Such words of assurance from the Lord Himself should fill a people, to whom they are addressed, with hope, with vision, with ambition to live up to those words of promise; that all the promises of the past should be realised through this people in the restoration of those things to man again in this latter dispensation; that they are to become the light of the world, a light unto the Gentiles, a city set upon a hill whose light should be seen to the ends of the earth, and that they should become the saviours of the whole House of Israel. These are the words of promise made to us, therefore we have reason to feel that we are a people with a mission and a destiny.
However, I have discovered that self-appointment does not bring a people any marked distinction, and that boasting about a thing of this character will not brin g its realisation. I have dis covered that there are three essential things that must be taken into account in order to realise the accomplishment of things so wonderful as those indicated in these words of promise which I have read.
