10 Things Jesu Taught The Preface Surprised by Jesus

I remind you of words spoken by the Prophet Joseph to the women of the Relief Society in April of What marvelous potential lies within you. You are very precious, each of you. You are His daughters, precious to Him, loved by Him, and very important to Him. His grand design cannot succeed without you. You are an absolutely essential part of that plan. Without you the plan could not function.

Without you the entire program would be frustrated. There has come to you as your birthright something beautiful and sacred and divine. Never forget that. Your Eternal Father is the great Master of the universe. He rules over all, but He also will listen to your prayers as His daughter and hear you as you speak with Him. He will answer your prayers. He will not leave you alone. The twenty-fifth section of the Doctrine and Covenants … is a revelation given through Joseph the Prophet to his wife Emma.

In very large measure each of us holds the key to the blessings of the Almighty upon us. If we wish the blessing, we must pay the price. A part of that price lies in being faithful. Faithful to what? Faithful to ourselves, to the very best that is within us. No woman can afford to demean herself, to belittle herself, to downgrade her abilities or her capacities. Let each be faithful to the great, divine attributes that are within her.

Be faithful to the gospel.

Be faithful to the Church. We have all about us those who are seeking to undermine it, to look for weaknesses in its early leaders, to find fault with its programs, to speak critically of it. I give you my testimony that it is the work of God, and those who speak against it are speaking against him.

Be faithful to him. He is the one true source of your strength. He is your Father in Heaven. He lives. He hears and answers prayers. Be faithful to God. I think every woman … understands the meaning of that. I feel those words were given to Emma Smith, and consequently to all of us, as a condition to be observed if we are to receive an inheritance in the kingdom of God.

Lack of virtue is totally inconsistent with obedience to the commandments of God. There is nothing more beautiful than virtue. There is no strength that is greater than the strength of virtue. There is no other nobility equal to the nobility of virtue. There is no quality so becoming, no attire so attractive. Each of you is an elect lady. You have come out of the world as partakers of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

You have made your election, and if you are living worthy of it, the Lord will honor you in it and magnify you. She was to be a teacher. She was to be a teacher of righteousness and truth. She was to study the gospel. She also was to study the things of the world in which she lived.

That was made clear in subsequent revelations applicable to all of us. To you women of today, who are old or young, may I suggest that you write, that you keep journals, that you express your thoughts on paper. Writing is a great discipline.

What Did Jesus Say about Divorce?

It is a tremendous educational effort. It will assist you in various ways, and you will bless the lives of many. What a remarkable charge to her and to all of the women of this Church. There must be learning, there must be preparation, there must be organization of thought, there must be an expounding of the scriptures, there must be an exhortation to good works as directed by the Holy Spirit. I feel he was not telling Emma that she should not feel concerned about a place to live, food on her table, and clothing. He was saying to her that she should not be obsessed with these things, as so many of us are wont to be.

He was telling her to get her thoughts on the higher things of life, the things of righteousness and goodness, matters of charity and love for others, the things of eternity. I believe he is saying to each of us, be happy.

The gospel is a thing of joy. It provides us with a reason for gladness. Build community life, because in the life of a community it is this way, like a family, and it is the very Holy Spirit who is in the middle of the community. Let things go, do not brag, be patient with everything, smile from the heart. Joy is confirmed in the experience of community, that theological space where each one is responsible for their fidelity to the Gospel and for the growth of all.

When a community is fed by the same Body and Blood of Jesus, it gathers around the Son of God, to share the journey of faith, guided by the Word. It becomes one with him, together in communion, experiencing the gift of love and festive celebration in freedom and joy, full of courage. We are called to undertake an exodus out of our own selves, setting out on a path of adoration and service.

Have the courage to go against the tide of this culture of efficiency, this culture of waste. Encountering and welcoming everyone, solidarity and fraternity: these are what make our society truly human. Be servants of communion and of the culture of encounter! I would like you to be almost obsessed about this. St Thomas said: bonum est diffusivum sui.

Good spreads. And joy also spreads.
