Why is it such a BIG DEAL? Why should we care?
The basic and fundamental truth that should absolutely drive us all in this life, allow us to receive joy here and now, and Life (exaltation) with our Heavenly Father…. is to become CLEAN !!!….Pure, Sanctified.
As spirit sons and daughters of God our Father the only way for us to be welcome or comfortable in His presence is if we become clean from the blood and stains of this world. Our quest then becomes to put off all worldly things. Strive to become clean like Him.
Since all of us are human and imperfect,we make mistakes, then it stands to reason that there must be some assistance or help for us…. Something that will enable us to DO THIS and help us along this path.
There is. The Atonement makes it possible…. after all we can do….it is not because of what we can do, it is after all we can do…He makes up the difference. It is our doing that helps us feel His guidance and assistance. Without that guiding spirit and help from the Savior we are lost and will not be with Him. WHY? The simple fact is, we cannot do it on our own. We must rely upon the merits and mercy of the Holy one and accept Him as our redeemer and Savior. TRUST HIM, have Faith in Him. He is the way the truth and the light, the bridge that shows us the pathway back into the presence of GOD. It comes from Him by the Spirit.
The answer to the question posed above is ….it is such a BIG DEAL because if we are not in the process each day of becoming clean and pure, then it is very hard to feel the spirit. The spirit comes to reside in worthy and clean places like the temple…It does not dwell in defiled temples. Know ye not that ye are a temple of GOD and the spirit of God dwelleth in you? Each time we change, repent and do righteous things we allow the Holy Ghost to come and direct us and guide us, Guide us and direct us where? Everywhere we need to be and go…..Guide us on the road back to our Heavenly. It tells us all things what we should do. It allows us to navigate this earthly maze.
“Spirituality—being in tune with the Spirit of the Lord—is the greatest need we all have.
We should strive for the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost all the days of our lives.
When we have the Spirit, we will love to serve, we will love the Lord, and we will love those with whom we serve, and those whom we serve.
“I have said so many times to my brethren that
the Spirit is the most important single element in this work.
With the Spirit and magnifying your call, you can do miracles for the Lord in the mission field.
Without the Spirit you will never succeed of your talent and ability.”
Ezra T. Benson
It is such a BIG DEAL because this is how we progress the way the Father directs us to progress. It is His simple doctrine. …. Very simple and clear.
Be clean and worthy by the way we live, and in return feel the SPIRIT OF THE LORD. Feel the Holy Ghost direct us and guide us.
Be Clean! Have Faith In HIM! Feel His Spirit!
It is a BIG DEAL!
Happy Birthday America.
