Elder Robert K. William of the Seventy has a message of Joy for this Christmas season.
“We are modern day witnesses of the powerful fulfilment of God’s prophetic preparation of His people by those whom He has called as Prophets, Seers, and Revelators.”
We can make each of our homes a house of faith by believing in the goodness of God and believing that by living gospel principles we can live in spiritual peace and security despite any earthly trials.
As children learn to make choices on their own as guided by their parents and Church leaders, they begin to form a pattern in their formative years. Despite living in an ever more complex world, they can learn to make decisions based on the Savior’s example.
Out of love, God bestowed upon men ordinances and covenants.
“We are living in it right now. It includes ‘all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal,’ and the ‘many great and important things’ that ‘He will yet reveal.’”
While many of our beliefs are the same, some are different. And understanding those differences can provide important perspective that will fortify our faith and provide direction in our lives.
Then I invite you to worship in the temple and pray to feel deeply the Savior’s infinite love for you, that each of you may gain your own testimony that He directs this sacred and ageless work.
It is in doing the work that lives are blessed. It is through assuming this responsibility within elders quorums and Relief Societies that bishops will be able to focus their time and efforts on the rising generation.
There are treasures of truth that will lead anyone who reads it with sincerity towards our Savior.
Our ministry is to help others have opportunities to feel the promptings of the Holy Ghost, thus allowing them to act for themselves and walk along the covenant path.
When we choose to repent, we choose to change! We allow the Savior to transform us into the best version of ourselves.
