“This Is Life Eternal”

We talked about two gifts on Sunday. The Holy Ghost is a gift from God that guides us to the greatest gift of all - eternal life.  Learning to follow the Spirit may be difficult at times, but it is the guide we must follow.

"And this is life eternal,
that they might know thee
the only true God,
and Jesus Christ,
whom thou hast sent."
John 17:3

“The Holy Ghost speaks with a voice that you feel more than you hear. It is described as a ‘still small voice.’ And while we speak of ‘listening’ to the whisperings of the Spirit, most often one describes a spiritual prompting by saying, ‘I had a feeling …’ … Revelation comes as words we feel more than hear.” (President Boyd K. Packer, "Personal Revelation:  The Gift, the Test, and the Promise", Ensign, Nov. 1994, 60).

"But learn
that he who doeth
the works of righteousness
shall receive his reward,
even peace in this world,
and eternal life
in the world to come."
Doctrine and Covenants 59:23
