“Continue Ye in My Love"
Songs: I Feel My Savior's Love
The Lord Jesus Christ extends to each of us the invitation to abide in Him. But how do we actually learn and come to abide in Him?... We abide in Him by striving continually to strengthen our individual covenant bond with the Father and the Son…We abide in Him by truly feasting upon the words of Christ. The Savior’s doctrine draws us, as children of the covenant, closer to Him and will tell us all things what we should do.

Song: Keep the Commandments
We have rules to teach, guide, and protect children. Why? Because of the great love we have for them…We may feel at times that God’s laws restrict our personal freedom, take from us our agency, and limit our growth. But as we seek for greater understanding, as we allow our Father to teach us, we will begin to see that His laws are a manifestation of His love for us and obedience to His laws is an expression of our love for Him…
- Carole F. Stephens, “If Ye Love Me, Keep My Commandments”
Song: The Holy Ghost
The Holy Ghost provides personal revelation to help us make major life decisions about such things as education, missions, careers, marriage, children, where we will live with our families, and so on. In these matters, Heavenly Father expects us to use our agency, study the situation out in our minds according to gospel principles, and bring a decision to Him in prayer...the Holy Ghost..is the “Comforter,” the same who was “promised unto [the Savior’s] disciples.”

Song: I Know My Father Lives
In His great Intercessory Prayer, Jesus expressed this important truth: “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” …Just as Jesus knows each of us by name, one way we can come to better know Jesus is by learning His many names. Like the names of Israel and Peter, many of Jesus’s names are titles that help us understand His mission, purpose, character, and attributes. As we come to know Jesus’s many names, we will come to better understand His divine mission and His selfless character. Knowing His many names also inspires us to become more like Him—to develop Christlike attributes that bring joy and purpose to our lives…Jesus wants for us to know Him because His is the only name under heaven whereby we can be saved.
- Jonathan S. Schmitt, That They Might Know Thee
Song: Reverently and Meekly Now
[P]rayers of the Lord are also instructive, especially His intercessory prayers. They are so named because the Lord prayerfully interceded with His Father for the benefit of His disciples. Picture in your mind the Savior of the world kneeling in prayer...From [His] prayer[s]...we learn how keenly He feels His responsibility as our Mediator and Advocate with the Father. Just as keenly, we should feel our responsibility to keep His commandments and endure to the end... If we really care for others, we should pray for them. “Pray one for another… ,” taught James, for “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

Song: Awake, Ye Saints of God, Awake!
How glorious it is to contemplate that we have been invited into that perfect unity that exists with the Father and the Son. How can this happen? Pondering this question, it becomes clear that we must begin by becoming one within ourselves… [which] prepares us for the greater blessing of becoming one with God and Christ.
Jesus achieved perfect unity with the Father by submitting Himself, both flesh and spirit, to the will of the Father. His ministry was always clearly focused because there was no debilitating or distracting double-mindedness in Him...the Savior’s overarching ambition is to glorify the Father. The Father is “in” the Son in the sense that the Father’s glory and the Father’s will are the all-consuming occupation of the Son.
