by President Henry B. Eyring
Let me sum this one up quickly. This is what a testimony will do to you and for you. A testimony will prompt you to do good things.When we follow President Monson’s counsel from last conference to read the Book of Mormon and gain a testimony that it is the word of God, that testimony will lead us to a witness of Christ. Our witness of Christ’s mission and purpose will lead us to do good things and service while on this Earth.
Here are a few highlights for me from President Eyring (emphasis added):
“So, as much as we have already built faith and courage in our hearts, the Lord expects more from us—and from the generations after us. They will need to be stronger and braver because they will do even greater and harder things than we have done. And they will face increasing opposition from the enemy of our souls.”
“The best days are ahead for the kingdom of God on the earth. Opposition will strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ, as it has since the days of the Prophet Joseph Smith. Faith always defeats fear. Standing together produces unity. And your prayers for those in need are heard and answered by a loving God. He neither slumbers nor does He sleep.”
“Sometimes you will be the angelthe Lord sends to bear others up. Sometimes you will be the one surrounded by angels who bear you up.”
