|Petunias in October|
How glorious to watch the General Conference and to hear the word of the Lord's prophet and his apostles. My heart goes out to President Monson as his vibrant strength is beginning to fail him somewhat. May the Lord strengthen him to the end of his mission on this earth.
For this Sabbath Day I would like to quote King Benjamin from my daily scripture reading. Mosiah 5: 1-9.
When the king finished his talk to the people of Nephi, he was desirous to know if they believed the words spoken.
"And they all cried with one voice, saying: Yea, we believe all the words which thou has spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought a mighty change in us, or in our hearts, . . . we do rejoice with such exceedingly great joy."
We have also been lifted up this day by the word of a Prophet of God and his Apostles. As we were told by President Eyring: [The Spirit] is what we have felt this day.
To continue the words of King Benjamin, ". . . for ye say that your hearts are changed through faith on his name;. . . ye shall be called the children of Christ, his sons and his daughters;
"I would that ye should take upon you the name of Christ, ...there is no other name given whereby salvation cometh;
". . . ye should be obedient unto the end of your lives."
". . . whosoever doeth this shall be found at the right hand of God, for he shall know the name by which he is called, for he shall be call by the name of Christ."
HAPPY SABBATH DAY,
