Teachings of Presidents of the Church

Yesterday in Priesthood, we had our final lesson out of the Spencer W. Kimball book.  Chapter 24 was about Sharing the Gospel.  It was a very good lesson.  I found myself participating more than usual as I am passionate on missionary work.

The Lord promises us great blessings as we share the gospel.  It is likened unto a spiritual adventure.  All work pays off when even one soul expresses repentance and faith and the desire to be baptized.

An interesting point that was brought up was that the Lord has told us that our sins will be more readily forgiven as we bring souls unto Christ.  The following is said in Doctrine and Covenants Chapter four:

Now behold, a marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men. Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day. Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work; For behold the field is white already to harvest; and lo, he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not, but bringeth salvation to his soul; And faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God, qualify him for the work. Remember faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, godliness, charity, humility, diligence. Ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Amen.  (D&C 4)

There are many people waiting for us to teach them about the plan of happiness, the plan of salvation.

Also in this final lesson we talked about how the Lord has entrusted all members of the Church with a responsibility to serve as His messengers.

It becometh every man who hath been warned to warn his neighbor. (D&C 88:81)

 I think of the feelings I had when I first came to know the truths that I know now. I hope to help someone feel the way that I did.
