The Hope of God’s Light

Second Counselor in the First Presidency
As we seek to increase our love for God and strive to love our neighbor, the light of the gospel will surround and uplift us. Play 10785_000_41uchtdorf Entrance to Enlightenment I have a cherished painting in my office that is titled Entrance to Enlightenment. It was created by a friend of mine, the Danish artist Johan Benthin, who was the first stake president in Copenhagen, Denmark. The painting shows a dark room with an open door from which light is shining. It is interesting to me that the light coming through the door does not illuminate the entire room—only the space immediately in front of the door. To me, the darkness and light in this painting are a metaphor for life. It is part of our condition as mortal beings to sometimes feel as though we are surroun…

Are we prepared for the tribulations and the difficulties which lay ahead? Do we have food storage? 72 hour kids? Are we SPIRITUALLY prepared? The Lord reminded us via the words of Matthew, the apostle; It may already be too late but we must prepare NOW without delay!

I think we are not safe because we say we intend to do what’s right. I think the people who are safe are those who have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide and have not been deceived. To have the Holy Spirit with us as the Lord speaks of it here is to be guided by revelation from heaven.
