Before we were born, we lived with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. We needed a place to live with our families. We needed a place to get physical bodies. We needed a place to learn to choose the right.
Jesus Christ created the earth so we could live there and grow. On earth, we could have physical bodies. We could live with a family. We could learn to choose the right.
The prophet Moses knew what Jesus Christ did for us. Here is what Moses said:
"And there stood one among them that was like unto God, [it was Jesus Christ] and [Jesus Christ] said unto those who were with him: We will go down, for there is space there, and we will take of these materials, and we will make an earth whereon [Heavenly Father's children] may dwell;
"And we will prove [Heavenly Father's children] herewith, to see if they will do all things whatsoever the Lord their God shall command them; (Abraham 3:24-25)
I am grateful for Jesus Christ. He created the earth, where I can live and learn to choose the right.
