“I promise you that if you are faithful… to the Melchizedek Priesthood and happy to go teach the Gospel to others… joy will fill your soul.”
There will always be opportunities to teach the Gospel in your life, always.
(Why do spiritual impressions that I feel in connection with these thoughts also link me to home building? At first it was the thought of my plans from the past for adobe house construction, but I feel that the impression has to do perhaps with a different kind of home building. Perhaps, the building of family. How deceptively close the two feelings are!)
Scriptures for consideration here:
- Doctrine and Covenants 84:33 & 34
- Doctrine and Covenants 50:13
- Doctrine and Covenants 42 (If you don’t have the Spirit, ye shall not teach.)
- Doctrine and Covenants 93
Doctrine and Covenants 84:33 & 34 –
For whoso is faithful unto the obtaining these two priesthoods of which I have spoken, and the magnifying their calling, are sanctified by the Spirit unto the renewing of their bodies
They become the sons of Moses and of Aaron and the seed of Abraham, and the church and kingdom, and the elect of God.
Doctrine and Covenants 42:14
And the Spirit shall be given unto you by the prayer of faith; and if ye receive not the Spirit ye shall not teach.
Signs and wonders cannot change us more than opening our mouth by the Spirit. This is the only way that we can magnify our callings.
Reviewing my role as a minister of the Gospel to my own family. My children are closed to me. How do I get them to open to the light?
