I don’t have a whole lot to write about since its only been a few days since I wrote last but on Saturday we were given a talk by a member that we read and it puts a lot in to perspective! It was a talk give by Tad R. Callister during an Education Week called, Our Identity and Destiny.
He talks about how when we know who we really are, and tells us how we can be come like God! He gives the talk in a conversation format between a "Critic" and Member of the Church. He gives five witnesses that show how we know we can become like God. I will quickly sum them up but I HIGHLY recommend everyone read listen or watch the talk!
1. The Scriptures
2. Early Christian Writers
3.Poets and Authors
Once we know who we really are, it helps us see where we are going!
"However many generations in your mortal ancestry, no matter what race or people you represent, the pedigree of your spirit can be written on a single line. You are a child of God!"
I love love LOVE this quote from the talk. WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD! A lot of times I think we say it but don’t really think about what that REALLY means. When adults create life they don’t create more adults, they create babies! The same logic can be applied to God. Just because babies are not born adults it does not mean that they wont become adults! Same applies to us! Just because we are not Gods now does not mean we will not become Gods. And just like a baby has parents to teach it how to grow up and learn and grow, the same goes for us and God. God is always trying to teach us how we can learn and grow so that we can become like him! Ultimately that is what the Plan of Salvation and the Gospel of Jesus Christ is about! The more I study the gospel the more I see how everything fits together and makes sense! Don’t be afraid that when you have a question that doesn’t makes sense that it will NEVER make sense! Because it will. In time. Our life is not over. Even in life to come we will always be learning! We must be patient with ourselves and all things will be made known to us! I love you all and I am praying for you all!
Welp! I don’t know about you but my mind is blown! Definitely something to think about! I LOVE IT! 😀
