President Henry B. Eyring - Priesthood session

Recommended Posts

Let us do whatever is required to qualify for the Holy Ghost as our companion, and then let us go forward fearlessly so that we will be given the powers to do whatever the Lord calls us to do.

The companionship of the Holy Ghost, the manifestations of it in our life and service, requires us to put our lives in order to qualify.

Humble prayer to our Heavenly Father, in deep faith in Jesus Christ, is essential to qualify us for the companionship of the Holy Ghost.

Our humility and our faith that invite spiritual gifts are increased by our reading, studying, and pondering the scriptures.

But reading, studying, and pondering are not the same.

But when we ponder, we invite revelation by the Spirit.

Repentance, prayer, and pondering over the scriptures are essential parts of our qualifying for the gifts of the Spirit in our priesthood service.

I urge all of us, young and old, who are called to speak in a meeting in the name of the Lord to dismiss our feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy. We don’t have to use soaring language or convey deep insights. Simple words of testimony will do.

Two services in which you will be called:

The first is as His agent to teach and testify to others for Him.

In addition to the call to teach, all of us will be sent by the Lord to succor those in need.

Serve with the Spirit
