“God is Love”
We are each one on a road going toward home…We’re trying to get there for eternity. We want to arrive home safely to our loving Father in Heaven. He wants us to make it safely there, so He has sent a guiding light for us to follow: a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, the perfect example. He knows the way. He lights our path in the dark of night, in storms, at crossroads, and in the daylight. He is always ready to show the way back home.
- Margaret D. Nadauld, Follow the Light
Our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ, have the power to save us and transform us. They can help us become as They are… Although we can’t save ourselves, when we submit to the Lord’s will and keep our covenants, the way is open for our redemption…we can have our hearts changed, have His image in our countenances, and become new creatures in Christ.
- Paul V. Johnson, Be Perfected in Him
Because They love you, They do not want to leave you “just as you are.” Because They love you, They want you to have joy and success. Because They love you, They want you to repent because that is the path to happiness. But it is your choice—They honor your agency. You must choose to love Them, to serve Them, to keep Their commandments. Then They can more abundantly bless you as well as love you.
- D. Todd Christofferson, The Love of God
Our service to others is a demonstration of discipleship and our gratitude and love for God and His Son, Jesus Christ…After all is said and done, true ministering is accomplished one by one with love as the motivation...As we accept the opportunity to wholeheartedly minister to our sisters and brothers, we are blessed to become more spiritually refined, more in tune with the will of God, and more able to understand His plan to help each one return to Him.
- Jean B. Bingham, Ministering as the Savior Does
I am grateful for angels throughout the Church who boldly and lovingly proclaim eternal truth to Heavenly Father’s children…I don’t know if anything in this world could bring more happiness and joy than to know that our children know the Savior...That is why we pray with our children every day. That is why we read the scriptures with them every day. That is why we teach them to serve others, so that they can hold claim upon the blessings of finding themselves as they lose themselves in the service of others.
- K. Brent Nattress, No Greater Joy Than to Know That They Know
Do not think that it is easy to maintain a testimony. Others will test you. Sometimes they will point the finger of mockery and scorn. Sometimes they may persecute you openly...We should not let others determine our faithfulness and affect our testimony and ultimately our eternal salvation…Each of us will be tested, tempted, and tried for our testimonies and to find out if we will remain true and faithful through these trials of our faith.
- Robert D. Hales, The Importance of Receiving a Personal Testimony
Our family loves the Come Follow Me program! We have organized the weekly lessons from the various Come Follow Me lesson manuals into daily lessons (6 lessons and one day for review!) that work for our young children.
We hope that sharing this content will make scripture study easier for your family as well!
