Its been a really awesome week and im loving being a missionary more and more each day. But today i just want to share with yall the things i learned in my zone conference with President Hall this week. I know they are things i needed to learn and that they will be a benefit for you too.
We talked about doing the will of God. When Christ introduces himself in 3 Nephi 11:8-11 he shows that he came down to earth to fulfill the will of his Father.This is exactly why we are here, to be OBEDIENT. We all have our agency and sometimes we think choosing the wrong things is the “easy way out” when really obedience is freedom. When we are obedient we are independent. When we give up our agency and do the will of God by being obedient to his commandments is when we truly find ourselves and our identity. Honestly, obedience cant be forced on us. We are never forced to be obedient and thats why obedience is the ONLY thing that we have that we can give to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. A lot of us like to define humble as someone who is poor. But thats not true. When we are humble is when we give our will up and do the Fathers will. We also got to listen to a testimony from Elder Holland, heres a few things he touched on: Christ suffered because of the will of the Father. Salvation isnt cheap, we HAVE to suffer. Christ chose to wear the marks of suffering. His body will be the only one that is not perfect because of his wounds that he chose to wear. He did all of this for the will of the Father. This made me really think,What am i willing to do for the will of the Father? I want yall to think about that also and think about the things that you need to change in order to be aligned with the will of the Father. I love yall so much!
