Becoming Saviors on Mount Zion lesson by Heidi Yeates

Chapter 41: Becoming Saviors on Mount Zion

This lesson discusses the commencement of proxy baptisms (and other saving ordinances) in this last dispensation. The Lord was specific about the way things are to be done: in His temple with proper witnessing and recording of ordinances done in behalf of our deceased ancestors.
The doctrine of salvation for the dead demonstrates the great love the mercy the Lord has for us, and the fairness of the plan of Salvation. All those who did not have the opportunity to accept the gospel in this life will have that chance in the spirit world, but their ordinances must be performed here, on Earth.
That is how we become saviors on Mount Zion, by doing for others what they cannot do for themselves. Joseph Smith said, "The greatest responsibility in this world that God has laid upon us is to seek after our dead." " For we without them cannot be made perfect; neither can they without us be made perfect . . . ."
I would invite all those who were unable to attend Relief Society (and those that were there, as well) to read the chapter in its entirety.
