During the announcement of President Russell M. Nelson as the 17th President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Tuesday January 16, 2018, I eagerly anticipated his first message to church members.
“In this spiritual application, “RICE” can stand for Repentance, Imparting of ourselves to others, Covenants and Endurance.”
The Sabbath helps us turn to the Lord, to our families, to those in need.
“Everything in the Church, the meetings and activities, the missionary efforts, the lessons taught and the hymns, all lead to the work done in holy temples.”
“The adversary is very cunning; he has been trying to worm his way into our lives for a very long time”
“There are many things that have affected my life this last week since conference, and I suspect will continue to in the future.”
Ordinances and covenants have the power to elevate our lives above the temporal and provide the safety of greatest worth.
